The project investigate a reality where we, with synthetic biology, can program organisms to objects. A reality where your possessions will grow at home, instead of being manufactured in factories.
Your objects will require care, and will repair themselves. You can, like digital images, save and recreate your objects anywhere, anytime. The lost teddy bear of your child will be resurrected, with the same DNA, from a stored cutting. Your lamp doesn’t need electricity and you can spread your table among your friends.
Synthetic Biology is a research area concerning the construction of new biological systems and functions that do not already exist in the nature. The project has been done with support from BioNyfiken’s, a bio hacker group in Stockholm.
The project received Ulla Fröberg-Cramérs stipendiestiftelse’s scholarship. It was chosen to be a part of the
ARTS-project(http://acceleratingtransitions.eu/) and will be developed further within the Interactive Institute.
