Abstract:

  • Contemporary approaches to art and biology, and in particular to digital art and genetic engineering, seem to reveal a new form of collaboration between art and science. In this article I will critically explore how new art forms which emerges form that kind of collaboration, both dramatically differs from artworks which explore art and genetics through the use of traditional media. I will focus on the powerful metaphors that are part of the discourse of molecular biology today and how these metaphors become part of the discourse of the art world today
