Bioalloy is an ongoing research endeavour into artistic Cyborgian systems developed in the FNAS laboratories at the University of Western Australia. Bioalloy began with the idea of designing and creating a machine that in'corp'orates a living system that grows and nurtures its own "skin"; a Cyborg. From initial designs using primitive and simple shapes which depicted non-anthropomorphic Cyborgian forms, the project grew. Further research into the co-existence of a Cyborgian system and the Human Body led to a collaboration with performance artist S. Chandrasekaran; Bioalloy and the Body Performance. Bioalloy has also been fashioned into stunning and durable clothing. Working with contemporary artist Donna Franklin, the once Cyborgian "skin" has now been transformed in to Micro'be' fermented fashion.
