Event Details

Saturday 30th March 2013, 7 for 7.30pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

As the building blocks of life become better understood we increasingly have the potential to create new forms of life. Experience the DIY-bio movement first hand as artists, scientists (and those in between) explore the interface between biology, engineering and art and consider biology as a new material for design.

We ask what the future of synthetic biology has in store as New York-based artist Jason Hackenwerth –whose giant work ‘Pisces’ will grace the National Museum of Scotland during the Science Festival – discusses the inspiration behind his fantastical work.

Alastair Elfick, of the International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Foundation and the Synthetic Aesthetics sci–art project will meanwhile share his work on how biological organisms and cells can be engineered to create everything from new materials to replacement joints and cheap drugs.
