In relation to BioTechnique, curator Phil Ross is organizing 'Technebiotics' :
"Part science fair, part county fair, this interactive afternoon event will feature multiple live demonstrations and do-it-yourself workshops on a wide range of biological techniques and processes. Artists, scientists and educators will demonstrate how to spool DNA, extract and cultivate stem cells, construct a home distiller or a hyrdoponic garden, hybridize plants, and more. See cutting edge laboratory equipment alongside traditional horticultural methods and enjoy hands-on interaction with each display. Technebiotics promotes the intersection of the arts, sciences, and technology in a “DIY” atmosphere, and will bring together expert knowledge and playful experimentation in this afternoon of technical flora and fauna."
Gardending Superfund Sites is an art project that fosters discourse around the issues of nature preservation, industry, and activism. Information and workshops with students and community groups to create a call to action to high tech industries to take responsibility for their actions.
