Grow Your Own... Life After Nature

ALL THAT I AM Installation, 2011 Koby Barhard (IL)

Experimental new Science Gallery exhibition looks to a future of designed life, Dublin (Ireland)
Do you own your DNA? Should we re-engineer living organisms to fulfill our needs and desires? Will everyday objects and machines soon be grown rather than made? And does your body have the potential to become a factory for medical products? Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin launched ‘GROW YOUR OWN…’, an experimental new exhibition that involves artists, scientists and designers and provokes discussion around an emerging approach to genetic engineering known as ‘synthetic biology’.
