What is the intersection of Science and Art? What is Synthetic Biology and how will its emergence create the future of our infrastructure, materials, and experience with the physical world? What does it mean to everyday life that we can now engineer new organism's, functions, and materials? How will or can it affect the everyday person? Do we need to fear bioterrorism? What can we dream about now that we’ve unlocked life’s code?
At Genetically Altered: a visual discussion we explore these topics, the fears, the dreams, and processes of engineering life to the public through artistic visualization and a fully immersive experience in Oakland, CA.
