While genetic engineering has existed in some form or another since the early 70s, it has recently become widely known as a hotly debated social issue. The science that creates genetically modified organisms has been touted as revolutionary, and our ability to manipulate nature at its very core has led to innovations in crop resistance and food sustainability. BIO-fied artists will consider the social, cultural, economic, and personal ramifications of the manipulation of an organism’s genome through the use of biotechnology. Each artist has the freedom to render the theme as they individually interpret or respond to it.
