Abstract

Bioart is a creative practice that adapts scientific methods and draws inspiration from the philosophical, societal, and environmental implications of recombinant genetics, molecular biology, and biotechnology. Some bioartists foster interdisciplinary relationships that blur distinctions between art and science. Others emphasize critical responses to emerging trends in the life sciences. Since bioart can be combined with realistic views of scientific developments, it may help inform the public about science. Artistic responses to biotechnology also integrate cultural commentary resembling political activism. Art is not only about ‘responses’, however. Bioart can also initiate new science and engineering concepts, foster openness to collaboration and increasing scientific literacy, and help to form the basis of artists’ future relationships with the communities of biology and the life sciences.
