Home Made Bio Electronic Arts

Six easy do-it-yourself projects to experiment with

For biology and electronics do-it-yourselfers and other curious people

‹Science for everyone› is the motto of a new movement involving biology and electronics. Here the do-it-yourself approach, that is already well-established on the electronics and computer scene, is applied to the field of natural sciences, blurring the borderlines between art and science. The artists and scientists, who work in this interdisciplinary way, refer to themselves as bio-hackers or bio-punks and deliberately take up the creative impetus provided by those two movements. Their research aims to communicate scientific knowledge, that is otherwise reserved for insiders only.

Home Made Bio Electronic Arts introduces some of the movement’s important exponents and presents six simple do-it-yourself projects to experiment with.
