Course operating at intersection of art and science

Students in the class “Bioart: Contemporary Art and the Life Sciences” will explore the ethical debates, issues of access and accountability, and overspecialization that arise from contemporary biotechnologies and bioart practices. The course is now seeking enrolment from students in all disciplines for the winter semester.

A crossover lab between visual art and science, the undergraduate class fosters exploration of the intersections between art and the life sciences through hands-on laboratory protocols, critical readings, theoretical writing, and the production of artwork.

No previous experience in art or biological sciences is required. The course, VSAR - 03860, is taught in person in the SoCA Armouries building, Thursdays from 11:30 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. Find more details on the website of instructor Jennifer Willet.
