SymbioticA’s BioTech Art Workshop is an introduction to biological techniques and issues surrounding the manipulation of living systems, run over an intensive five-day period.
SymbioticA’s BioTech Workshop is an introduction to biological techniques and issues surrounding the manipulation of living systems. Artists, designers and researchers from various disciplines engage in the biological science lab to utilise language and techniques into their practice and research.
The workshop is a practical and theoretical introduction to the basics of biological techniques and the creation of biological art and design. Through applied ‘hands-on’ methods, the broader philosophical and ethical implications of human intervention with other living things will be explored.
Led by SymbioticA’s Director Oron Catts and a key scientific collaborator from the School of Anatomy and Human Biology, the workshop is a theoretical and practical introduction to the basics of biological techniques. The SymbioticA BioTech Art Workshop was originally commissioned by the Experimental Art Foundation as a part of the Art of the Biotech Era Exhibition during the Adelaide Bank Festival of Arts 2004.
