Bioteknica - Vision 360 - 2007

[youtube=] APR 18/APR 23 Shawn Bailey and Jennifer Willet have dedicated themselves to mastering the techniques of tissue engineering. But they are not scientists. They are artists - and their art is raising profound and controversial questions.

Bailey and Willet are Canada's leading practitioners of "Bio Art," an emerging form that uses the tools of biology to create works of art. The goal is to draw attention to the field of biotechnology and its impact on society.

On its next edition, VisionTV's Gemini Award-nominated current affairs series 360 Vision takes a close look at the meaning and purpose of Bio Art, and the powerful reactions that it evokes.

The launch exhibit of FACT's Human Futures programme was fantastic. Friends came up from London, Orlan was hanging around and we saw a wonderful performance by live artist, titled 'Blue Remix', which was the highlight of the evening.
