PechaKucha Presentation

Presenter bw paul vanouse

Paul Vanouse

Professor of Art, Director of Coalesce Center for Biological Art, University at Buffalo in Buffalo, NY

“I’m a bio media artist. And what that means is I work self-reflexively, with the tools and technologies of the life sciences.” 

In Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Professor of Art at the University at Buffalo, Paul Vanouse, provides an overview of his work as a bio media artist. As Director of the newly created Coalesce Center for Biological Art at the University at Buffalo, Vanouse works with artists and philosophers and people who wouldn’t normally have a direct connection to do create work in a life sciences laboratory, and is actively engaged with Coalesce’s artist residency program. Vanouse’s own work has recently focused on DNA fingerprinting, removing the inherent layers of authority from DNA with an interest in the very visual representation of DNA. His recent projects, Latent Figure Protocol and Ocular Revision use molecular biology techniques to challenge “genome-hype” and to confront issues surrounding DNA fingerprinting.

30,000 Foot View of Biology

@ VOL 27 ON NOV 05, 2013

Britt Way, a radio documentray producer in Toronto, uses her biologist background and radio skills to talk about the development of biology today, especially concerning deextinction. As many of us know, we are living in the Sixth Extinction and our need to play God is more pressing then ever. She shows solutions to right the wrongs that we have created in several interesting and unconventional ways.

Sometimes it's the Little Things that Matter: Finding Practical Solutions to Simple Problems

@ VOL 10 ON AUG 28, 2014

Matthew Copeland, co-founded Gel Combs LLC with Brandon Walker and Ben Cox, medical physics students at UW. Together they took the idea of makeing a more practical gel comb for DNA electrophoresis and turned it into a company making and selling gel combs for life scientists. This presentation will describe how working with scientists helped him develop a practical solution to a simple problem.

The Art of Biology

@ VOL 17 ON MAR 09, 2017

Mehdi Doumi is from Algeria and England, studied biomedical engineering, and is a technical leader in Research and Innovation at L’Oreal USA - researching human perception of cosmetic products.  He has been part of NPO Ligo Project, promoting science in U.S. culture through humor and videography.  He also enjoys carpentry, improv, and drawing satirical cartoons.  Over the last 4 years he has committed himself to creating abstract artwork to any K-12 educator across the USA.  He hopes that each art piece stimulates student curiosity about math and science topics, especially in a challenging teaching environment.

Art in the Biogenetic Age

@ VOL 17 ON MAR 13, 2017

Laurie Ramsell talks about his sculptural work and the creation of a 'Pseudo-Siren' from bacterial cellulose and human hair, currently being exhibited at Birmingham Open Media. How can art lean from scientific research, and perhaps vice versa?

DIY Your DNA - Genetics For Everyone

@ VOL 149 ON JUL 26, 2017

"Lots of people can hack, make and create their own technologies and move from being just a consumer to being a participator or even a creator." 

In "DIY your DNA - Genetics for Everyone" From PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 149, Philipp Boeing wants to do for genetics what Arduino has done for electronics, making it open to everybody. As co-founder of Bento Lab, he’s helped create the world’s first easy-to-use DNA laboratory. Boeing will tell us about his journey to date with Bento Lab – and what the future holds for citizen science!

Philipp Boeing さんは初心者でも簡単に扱うことが可能なマイコンボード、Arduinoが電子機器の世界に貢献したことを遺伝学にも応用したいと考えています。 Bento Labの共同設立者として、Philippさんは世界で初めて使い勝手の良いDNAラボの創造に貢献しました。 ボーイングは、Bento Labとの今日までの道のりについて、そして未来が市民科学にとってどう歩んでいくことになるかをお話してくださいます!
