Our Biotech Future(s): Student projects from the Biodesign Challenge
June 23, 2016 / 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us for the gallery opening of Our Biotech Future(s): Student Projects from the Biodesign Challenge at School of Visual Arts (SVA).
Nine art and design teams from universities across the United States showcase their visions of the future of biotechnology. Chosen from dozens of students, the finalists worked throughout the academic year with art and design professors, scientists and subject-matter experts to explore the many possible ways biotechnology could affect our environment and our lives.
Playing on the title of physicist Freeman Dyson’s seminal essay, ”Our Biotech Future,” the show presents a multiplicity of “futures,” some of which align, while others clash. Learn more about the projects at Biodesignchallenge.org.
The gallery show will run from June 23 – July 1 at SVA.
Light snacks and drinks will be provided.
