Today at 4PM – Professor Paul Vanouse, “Islands of Anomaly in a Sea of Sameness: Making Pictures with DNA”
December 9, 2016 by: Natalie Fleming
Paul Vanouse, Professor of Art and Director of Coalesce, will present:
“Islands of Anomaly in a Sea of Sameness: Making Pictures with DNA”
Paul will give a talk followed by a brief tour of Coalesce Center for Biological Arts. Coalesce is UB’s new hybrid studio laboratory facility dedicated to enabling hands-on creative engagement with the tools and technologies of the life sciences. It is a place where artists, designers and architects actively learn, use and create, using life sciences technologies as their medium; scientists explore new forms or broader cultural meanings of their work; and philosophers, writers and social scientists interact in a tangible way with the processes of the life sciences. However, it is a place where such disciplinary labels are challenged and hybrid creative practices are incubated.
This event will be followed by a reception.
