Orkan Telhan Selected As Artist In Residency To Explore Synthetic Biology
Orkan Telhan, interdisciplinary artists and assistant professor of Fine Arts at University of Pennsylvania, has been chosen as the artist in residency for a six week programme at the Center for Fundamental Living Technology (FLinT), University of Southern Denmark. The art programme, which was initiated by Vienna based Biofaction and forms part of the SYNENERGENE project's activities, aims at critically exploring bottom-up Synthetic Biology, its societal ramifications and cultural aspects, and at helping envision the potential long-term changes Synthetic Biology might bring to society, through the lens of an artist. Telhan will actively engage with the scientists while working on a Synthetic Biology related artwork.
