The Art of Biology 


Salma Nour

         Art and Science are only different expressions of a single underlying tone.

What is Bio Art?

  • Bio Art is art that uses living and semi-living materials in its making. 
  • It is a practice which uses living forms as materials, a merging of science and art expressed through the medium of biotechnology.

Bio Artists

Marta De Menez

 "I have created live butterflies where their wing patterns were modified for artistic purposes"

Eduardo Kac

Stelarc is known for going to extremes, from voluntary surgeries and implementing  body parts to flesh-hook suspensions.

Advantages 

  • A form of expression and art
  • Helps to visualize better the science world

Disadvantages

How are bioartists any different from scientists?


The answer is that they are not.

Einstein once said that logic alone is insufficient to solve complex problems, and that imagination was more important to a scientist than knowledge itself
