Call for Participants: SymbioticA Biotech for Artists Workshop
28th January-1st February, 2013
Saturday 2nd February, official inauguration of Aalto BiofiliA wet biology laboratory

Deadline for applications- Friday 26th November 2012
 
BiofiliA, Base for Biological Arts, Aalto University, Finland, in collaboration with SymbioticA, The University of Western Australia is organizing an intensive five day workshop for artists and other interested people.

The workshop will be led by SymbioticA's Director//Aalto visiting Professor Oron Catts and BiofiliA’s scientific collaborator Marika Hellman.
 
This is a hands-on workshop where the tools of modern biology are demonstrated through artistic engagement, which in turn gives voice to the broader philosophical and ethical exploration into the extent of human intervention with other living things. It involves exploration of biological technologies and issues stemming from their use; it serves as a theoretical and practical introduction to the creation of biological art and is aimed at mentoring artists in issues of biotechnology and the life sciences.
 
The workshop will cover hands-on engagement with some of the fundamental tool of modern biology in order to be able to carry out and critique manipulation of living systems from an informed practical perspective. The practical components include DNA extraction and fingerprinting, genetic engineering, animal tissue culture and basic tissue engineering techniques.

Attendance and Conditions:

Attendance at the workshop will be by selection through open submission or by invitation. The selection will be made by BiofiliA, SymbioticA and an external assessor.

Workshop leaders:

Oron Catts is an artist, researcher and curator whose pioneering work with the Tissue Culture and Art Project which he established in 1996 is considered a leading biological art project. In 2000 he founded SymbioticA, an artistic research centre housed within the School of Anatomy, Physiology and Human Biology, The University of Western Australia. Under Oron’s leadership SymbioticA has gone on to win the Prix Ars Electronica Golden Nica in Hybrid Art (2007) and became a Centre for Excellence in 2008.

In 2009 Oron was recognised by Thames & Hudson’s “60 Innovators Shaping our Creative Future” book in the category “Beyond Design”, and by Icon Magazine (UK) as one of the top 20 Designers, “making the future and transforming the way we work”.

Catts’ interest is life, more specifically the shifting relations and perceptions of life in the light of new knowledge and it application. Often working in collaboration with other artists (mainly Ionat Zurr) and scientists, Catts have developed a body of work that speak volumes about the need to for new cultural articulation of evolving concepts of life.

Oron was a Research Fellow in Harvard Medical School and a visiting Scholar at the Department of Art and Art History, Stanford University. He is currently the Director of SymbioticA, a Visiting Professor of Design Interaction, Royal College of Arts, London, and a Visiting Professor at Aalto University’s Future Art Base, Helsinki.

Catts’ ideas and projects reach beyond the confines of art; his work is often cited as inspiration to diverse areas such as new materials, textiles, design, architecture, ethics, fiction, and food.

Future Art Base: BiofiliA – Base for Biological Arts

Aalto BiofiliA program consists of trans-disciplinary studies that aim at creating cultural discussion around the topics related to the manipulation of life and biological processes at a practical and theoretical level, including philosophical and ethical dimensions. The program includes series of lectures and hands-on workshops in the laboratory and natural environments exploring the interfaces between biosciences and art.  The new laboratory BiofiliA in Otaniemi Campus will be opened in autumn 2012 and will offer a place for biological-artistic research, education and production.
