Winner of DA4GA I, Matthijs Munnik with Singing worms: Microscopic Opera
Microscopic Opera is an audiovisual installation created by Matthijs Munnik and the Netherlands Consortium for Systems Biology. In this project lab worms C. Elegans produce images and sounds. Quote: “We are able to manipulate life forms without them even knowing that we exist. What if the same is also true for us? What if humans are not aware that something else is manipulating them?”
Winner of DA4GA I Jalila Essaïdi with Transgenic skin: 2,6g 329m/s
Jalila Essaïdi and Forensic Genomics Consortium Netherlands developed the project 2.6g 329m/s which includes creation of bulletproof transgenic human skin. The project emphatically explores the social, political, ethical and cultural issues concerning safety.
Quote: “I want to show that the safety in its broadest sense is a relative concept, and hence the term bulletproof. If the skin is pierced by the bullet, the experiment is certainly successful.”
