iGEM Stockholm is hosting an art exhibition 25 metres below the surface, home to Swedens first nuclear reactor R1. The theme of the exhibition is Synthetic Biology, a new interdisciplinary area that involves the application of engineering principles to biology. It aims at the (re-)design and fabrication of biological components and systems that do not already exist in the natural world. If you want to know more and get inspired check out these videos!
We invite you to create artwork inspired by synthetic biology and have it displayed in the reactor. Share your art, join the event and participate in a discussion about the craft of the future!
