Create living, genetically modified organisms by introducing extra-cellular DNA into E. coli. We will discuss the theory, techniques, and ethics of genetic modification and examine how artists use man’s manipulation of nature to create hybrid organisms and provocative artworks that urge us to consider practices and policies surrounding GMOs. This workshop will run concurrently with the Imagine Science Film Festival. NOTE: To see results, attendance at both sessions is required.
