A presentation by Dr. Jennifer Willet and guests
INCUBATOR Hybrid Laboratory at the Intersection of Art, Science and Ecology is an art/science laboratory in the School for Arts and Creative Innovation at the University of Windsor. The INCUBATOR Lab functions as both a studio and a laboratory intended to support the proliferation of life and new ideas towards the production of bioart projects. The INCUBATOR Lab is facilitates ongoing faculty and graduate level research and hosts the interdisciplinary undergraduate class BioART: Contemporary Art and the Life Sciences.
On October 05, 2013 an exhibition of 13 student bioart projects from the INCUBATOR Lab will go on exhibition at the !dea Gallery at the Ontario Science Centre. “BioART: Contemporary Art and the life Sciences” is co-curated by Jennifer Willet and Ana Klasnja. Additionally, INCUBATOR and the Ontario Science Centre are teaming up to co-produce an art/science performance event called the ECO NUIT PARADE as part of the Scotiabank Nuit Blanche the night of October 05 on Queen street West, Toronto.
With this talk, Willet (and participating students) will speak about INCUBATOR activities since 2009, and present some of the artworks included in the Ontario Science Centre exhibition and the ECO NUIT PARADE.
