Oron Catts of SymbioticA and the Tissue Culture and Art Project

March 19, 2014 @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm EDT

Oron Catts is an artist, researcher, and curator whose pioneering work with the Tissue Culture and Art Project, which he established in 1996, is considered a leading biological art project. He is the founding director of SymbioticA, which he co-founded in 2000, an artistic research centre housed within the School of Anatomy, Physiology and Human Biology, The University of Western Australia. In his presentation, Oron Catts will draw on his extensive experience of using tissue engineering for non-medical and artistic ends to speculate about what leads to these applications and their possible future development and applications. Avoiding utopian and dystopian postures, opting instead to present scenarios open to be contestably challenged, this talk will also highlight some philosophical and ethical considerations stemming from new technological approaches to life, relating fields such as synthetic biology and metagenomics.
