Howard Boland (UK) - Art from Synthetic Biology

Prague - December 7, 2012

Howard Boland presents his paper within the panel Blueprints for the Unknown at International conference Mutamorphosis in Prague, Czech Republic.

Art from Synthetic Biology’ employs novel standardisation processes in genetic engineering (i.e. synthetic biology) to develop genetic characteristics in bacteria that can expand language and boundary conditions of art. As an immersive and independent practice, it reflects on how artists come to assimilate recombinant affordances of bioscience towards art production and what critical issues are thrown up through such approaches. The research addresses how art may help broker understandings of non-human biological systems and what sort of interfaces we can build to enable such access.
