In this presentation, Svenja Kratz provides insight into the critical and creative potentials of cross-disciplinary art and science engagements. Using her research interests and creative work as a springboard for discussion, she provides insight into the development of her practice from early engagements within the area of cell and tissue culture, to more recent engagements with 3D scanning and biofabrication processes. In particular, the presentation provides an overview of the collaborative Biosynthetic Systems project developed in partnership with the Centre for Regenerative Medicine at QUT. Engaging speculatively with the concept of immortality through technological intervention, the project is designed to highlight the potentials of 21st century biomedical sciences and invite viewers to consider the creative applications of the Centre's research and contemplate the possibilities, and philosophical implications, of living engineered systems and mergers of artificial life and biotechnology.
