A bridge between bio-art, design, and everyday life
Led by engineers and researchers that operate at the forefront of their respective fields, the workshops in this series are designed to introduce future tools for the creation of media art works to participants from Japan and abroad. This third instalment is all about “personal biotechnology.”
Thanks to a dramatic decrease in costs over the past years, application possibilities of biotechnology are no longer limited to the industrial level, but it has become a familiar part also of individual life in terms of food, clothing and housing. This time’s workshop focuses on the necessary tools and techniques, and on the formation of a community around biotechnology as an increasingly common subject.
