"Entitled FUTURE EMERGING ART AND TECHNOLOGY, the exhibition presents a series of works of art created during collaborations between six internationally acclaimed artists and cutting-edge scientists. The artists were selected during an open process in March 2016 and paired with scientist groups working on European Union FET (Future Emerging Technologies) Open research projects such as exploring gene regulation, quantum physics, underwater robotics, carbon capture, and exascale computing. The works vary in form, from simulations and visualizations to performances and sculptures. The project is funded by FET Open program and aims to give alternative perspectives on new technologies and make them widely accessible."

"Bio Design Challenge: Food Futures" exhibited this month at the Royal College of Art. Students from across the school explored how current innovations in biodesign can shape and influence food production. The event made up part of Biodesign Challenge, a worldwide competition aiming to build collaborations between scientists, artists, designers, and engineers. This was the first time that the event was held in the U.K., and the winner of the exhibition (POM) will compete internationally during the BioDesign Summit held this week at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
