The idea that we can engineer and manipulate life itself is not that farfetched these days. In the past few years many artists have begun to tinker with science, biology, with the living world. This course provides a conceptual overview of artwork in the BioArt genre through hands-on instruction in specific techniques and tools for creative production at the intersection of art, biology, and technology. The first half of the semester will cover important artists and practitioners, while engaging students in experiments and lab work relevant to each artists’ practice. The second half of the semester students will work to realize an individual student BioArt project under the supervision of a scientific mentor in an appropriate or related field.
Course Open to: Degree Students
