Thanks for posting.
The exhibition looks interesting and I am sorry to miss it. The program
states that the presented works are related to synthetic biology. Am I
correct in understanding that the works featured in the exhibition are not,
in a material sense, synthetic biology but relate to this emerging field
conceptually? Many of these artworks have been exhibited under multiple
other headings. Could you elaborate if the exhibition includes any living
synthetic bio artworks developed by artists?
