Abstract : Aura Nera recreates the self-sufficient semiosphere of science, a cultural "stratum" condensed with symbols and meanings that have an archetypal scenario: the laboratory. Nevertheless, in this case, it functions as a laboratory of artificial cultures, free of biological manifestations sensitive to human control. A fictional scenario that becomes a bank of samples, a collection of geological, herbal prototypes or immaculate rooms of natural history museums, and other controlled environments that the artist, Regina de Miguel, visited in contexts like the Centro de Astrobiología associated with NASA in Madrid, the laboratories for in vitro cultures of endangered species of the Botanical Gardens in Sao Paulo, the Vulcanology Institute at the Universidad de Barcelona, the Natural Sciences Museum in Santiago de Chile and the Seed Bank of the city of Vicuña, also in Chile.
