Designing Living Things

Setup

We often take biology for granted, rarely recognizing the incredible technological feats of an organism as it grows, heals, and self-assembles—sustainably. As our ability to read, write, and design DNA grows, this power of biology is enabling amazing new biotechnologies to impact numerous industries, from everyday products brewed by designed microbes to programmable materials and living medicines. Biologist, writer, and artist Christina Agapakis explores the many unexpected connections between microbiology, technology, art, and popular culture and imagines a world where humans work with living things to create a more beautiful world.
