Art can be an effective way to facilitate conversations and explore concepts
that can elevate our understanding of scientific advances. With this notion,
Innovative Genomics Institute (IGI) and Stochastic Labs launched a unique
and first of its kind artist residency program on CRISPR. Dubbed as CRISPR
(un)commons Artist Residency, the program is set to gather the best creative
minds for conversations on the future technology, science, entrepreneurship,
and the arts. The goal of the program is to foster creative new
perspectives, introduce CRISPR to broader audiences, and catalyze deeper
engagement with the technology's fascinating implications.
Five artists namely Andy Cavatorta, Alison Irvine, Kate Nichols, Sheng-Ying
Pao, and Dorothy R. Santos have been invited to engage with the technology
and make creative works on CRISPR.
