New book - Synthetic Aesthetics
Jane Calvert and Pablo Schyfter are co-authors of the book Synthetic Aesthetics: Investigating Synthetic Biologyâ€™s Designs on Nature just published by MIT Press.
The other authors are Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, an independent artist/designer; Alistair Elfick from Edinburghâ€™s School of Engineering; and Drew Endy, a bioengineer from Stanford University.
The book presents the results of an EPSRC/NSF project that brought together synthetic biologists and artists and designers with the aim of provoking them to think about their work in new ways. The book will be launched at the V&A on the 25th of April.
