Creative Disturbance

In this Biocoillider episode, Adam Zaretsky talks with Matej Vakula about multi-species collaborations in bioart. What does it mean to ask for permission, and how do we ask non-humans? Can language or training influence gene expression? What ideas truly underpin the aesthetics of transhuman enhancement? What does the hype around certain scientific discoveries--such as CRISPR--serve? These questions are only a few excerpts from the range of topics we discussed.

Creative Disturbance

Ivanna came to my attention from our mutual friend, Roger Malina. He had met her during a trip to MIT and thought that she might be an interesting person to interview for the "Sound and Data" channel. So this was a bit of a cold call since I was not that familiar with her work. It was amazing to find out the angle at which she is approaching this idea of "sound and data" which was so different from so many of my other guests. I was fascinated.
