Biology Laboratories

Laboratories focus on learning scientific techniques in a meaningful way for both the artist and scientist, and using these techniques for creative output that is multidisciplinary in nature.
Cultural issues such as ownership of living systems, issues of partial life, synthetic biology, gene patenting, population diversity, sustainable technologies, new reproductive technologies, modifying bodies, nature/culture boundaries, emerging perceptions of life and the ethics of living art and/or science production are researched, discussed and debated.
