Abstract: «Organicities» refers to the role of the organic, of live organisms, in the context of artistic practices that, through the dispossession of the pragmatic function of the life sciences and their recontextualisation in their aesthetic form, tread the border between nature and art. We are referring to the artistic practices that have explored these fertile inter-relations throughout the history of art, but especially to the new practices that lead literally to the materialisation of the ideal of the total fusion between art and life, understanding such as the supreme act of human creation. This way, as art as a mirror of life comes up against life itself, the same questions that arise in the scientific and technological contexts appear, such as: what does altering the natural processes of millions of years of the evolution of life mean? Or, rather, how will we think of ourselves as humans once we manage to design our genetic map a la carte?
