Would you take daily inhalations to stay young? In her work “ÆON. Trajectories of Longevity and CRISPR,” the artist Emilia Tikka constructs a poetic scenario of a possible future. The installation is exhibited at the National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm from 23 January 2020.
Art is a powerful tool to reach people. Since prehistoric times, humans have used art to tell stories, communicate complex ideas and express emotions. Now, scientists and science communicators are increasingly using diverse art forms to convey science to the public. Join our inspirational session at the Forum for Science Communication.
The 4th NUCLEUS Conference will present the results from nearly three years of case studies and RRI test-beds designed to apply stakeholder-related approaches of Responsible Research and Innovation in real contexts. Meet the ORION Team at the conference in Valletta.
If there was a medicine that could stop physical ageing – would you take it? Artist Emilia Tikka’s installation, which is showcased at the Swedish National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm, uses this idea to stage a vision of the future. The artwork is the result of her collaboration with researchers in the field of genome editing. The exhibition was opened with a seminar on 23 January 2020.
How can you establish cultural change? How to implement and embed Open Science and Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) in your organisation? Those are the questions that the ORION project aims to answer. From the start of the project in 2017, ORION has been exploring how to establish an open dialogue with society on relevant research topics, such as genome editing, and has been developing new ways and collaborations between researchers and the general public. Co-creation is at heart of the ORION project.
Live forever thanks to CRISPR? The artist Emilia Tikka was a guest at the Max-Delbrück-Centrum für Molekulare Medizin and her work focused on the question: What if the CRISPR-Cas9 would make us immortal? See the result in the video and visit her exhibition at STATE Studio in Berlin.
