At the interface between art and biosciences. Which forms does artificial life take? How do humans today intervene in growth processes through synthetic biology? How does this affect the relationship between nature and culture? And what significance does art have in the age of the anthropocene? For Andreas Greiner (*1979), these questions are at the center of his work, where he questions the relationships between nature/technology/culture/art with regard to ethics as well as social and ecological issues. The volume places Andreas Greiner's work in a dialogue with scientists and experts from various disciplines such as physics, computer science, biology, music and architecture. The emerging interfaces raise the integral questions that the artist examines, which are more urgent than ever after the apparent quantum leaps in the medical-biological field, such as genetic engineering.
