Eye of the Storm Symposium, Tate Britain

I will be presenting my arts/research: “Pluripotent Stem Cells: an artist grows her own…” at the “Eye of the Storm” 2 day Symposium on scientific controversy at Tate Britain. I will be speaking about my adult stem cell project: ‘machina carnis’ during which I cultured adult stem cells from my blood and carried out an experiment to make them ’change fates’ into beating cardiac cells over 7 days in the laboratory. this project was part of my on-going enquiries into corporeality & the self which are continuing in the virtual world of ‘mellifera’.
