European festival features work by arts professor

Bio artist and School of Creative Arts faculty member Jennifer Willet has been showcasing her work, The Gentlemen Scientist Lab Coat, at the Ars Electronica 2023 Festival in Linz, Austria. The festival ran Sept. 6 to 10.

Ars Electronica invites artists, scientists, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, and activists worldwide to Linz. The question at Europe’s largest festival for art, technology, and society was: “Who Owns the Truth?

MFA student Daniela Gaie provided valuable assistance to Dr. Willet in creating the new addition to the Gentlemen Scientist Lab Coat.

Willet’s artwork installation was made possible with the support of the IOTA Institute Gallery, which has played a significant role in the success of the When Microbes Dream Tour and the Canada Council for the Arts.
