    Artistpresentation - Paul Vanouse

    ART and DNA technology
    The artist Paul Vanouse gives an introduction to his work.
    Paul Vanouse is an artist and Professor of Visual Studies at the University at Buffalo, NY, where he heads the program in Emerging Practices. Interdisciplinarity and impassioned amateurism guide his art practice. His biological and interactive media projects have been exhibited in over 20 countries and widely across the US.
    His recent projects, “Latent Figure Protocol”, “Ocular Revision” and “Suspect Inversion Center” use molecular biology techniques to challenge “genome-hype” and to confront issues surrounding DNA fingerprinting, particularly the idea the most authoritative image of our time, the DNA fingerprint, is somehow natural.

    Artistpresentations - Kate Nichols and Next Nature

    Today our program will have a look at how artists relate and work with Nano technology through presentations by artist Kate Nichols and Koert van Mensvoort, creative director at Next Nature.

    Kate Nichols started her artistic career as a traditional painter. Through her work and research of colors and pigments she got interested in the structural colors to be found in nature - like in the butterfly blue Morfo. This research led to her being incorporated as an artist to Professor Alivisatos laboratory in Berkeley, California.

    Next Nature Lab is an organization affiliated with the department of industrial design at Eindhoven University of Technology. Next Nature Lab observes new cultural and scientific phenomena and contributes articles and specific design projects. Their project Nano Supermarket presents speculative nano products that will be found in the shelves over the next ten years.
