Synthetic Aesthetics
"How would you design nature?

Synthetic Biology is a new approach to engineering biology, generally defined as the application of engineering principles – such as standardization and modularity - to the complexity of biology. The aim is to 'make biology easier to engineer', through the design and construction of new biological parts, devices, and systems, and the re-design of existing biological systems for useful purposes, from biofuels to new medical applications. Biology is becoming a new material for engineering - a new technology for design and construction."

b.a.n.g. lab » Bits.Atoms.Neurons.Genes
"Micro_Gestures at the Edge of Invisibility is an On/Off line space for artists in the Visual Arts Department at UCSD to explore and present works at the edge of invisibility, at the edge of the digital and biological, at the edge of micro-robotics and nano-art, from in-virtu to in-vivo works and back.

The b.a.n.g. lab is directed by Ricardo Dominguez.

Current projects include the Transborder Immigrant Tool.

Current lab members include Micha Cardenas and Christopher Head and Elle Mehrmand."

"DIYbio is an organization that aims to help make biology a worthwhile pursuit for citizen scientists, amateur biologists, and DIY biological engineers who value openness and safety. This will require mechanisms for amateurs to increase their knowledge and skills, access to a community of experts, the development of a code of ethics, responsible oversight, and leadership on issues that are unique to doing biology outside of traditional professional settings."

Curated Expeditions
"There are hardly any unexplored areas of the Earth, but the Time of Discovery is not over yet. Instead of losing sleep trying to find undiscovered places or struggling to survive remote and inhospitable environments such as the Polar Regions or Outer Space, we can use our energies to observe intriguing phenomena and endeavour to experience new sensations elsewhere, far beyond the ideas of the commercial film or video game industry. “Curated Expeditions” is dedicated to observing and experiencing fascinating earthly phenomena through artistic investigation. In parallel, Capsula wants to revive leisurely traveling experiences, which have been cast aside by the frantic pace of modern day life. Walking, bob-sleighing, swimming, hitchhiking, rowing, sailing, trains and submarines all personify the Capsula Philosophy of Voyage. The project is curated by Ulla Taipale."

Interview with Ulla Taipale from Capsula - we make money not art
"Last Summer, curatorial research group Capsula embarked on the first of its Curated Expeditions, demonstrating in the process that you don't need an intergalactic spaceship to uncover new territories and make meaningful discoveries. This series of Curated Expeditions are research trips that engage with earthly phenomena through artistic investigation." ... "The object is to make a series of expeditions dealing with earthly phenomena in remote and nearby destinations . The aim is to stimulate production and exhibition of multidisciplinary artistic creation related with nature's spectacles. I have many ideas for new expeditions and for the targets of the artistic survey, but these plans are in an early stage and not ready to be published yet." ""
