Join Dr Markus Schmidt, Director of Biofaction to celebrate the launch of the Peninsula Arts Contemporary Music Festival.
The 21st century has been described as the century of biology. Innovations in biotechnology, genome engineering, synthetic and xenobiology are expected to change fundamentally the technological, economic and social conditions for ours and future generations. As a result, the collaboration between art, music, science and policy is highly important. In this talk a number of art projects connected to synthetic biology will be presented and discussed.
