DIYsect is a documentary web-series on DIY Biology and Bioart

“DIYSECT (pronounced like “dissect”)¬†focuses on DIY Biology and the Biology-Art intersection. In Summer 2013, we traveled across the United States and Canada to film biohackers, bioartists, synthetic biologists, writers, and curators on this growing phenomenon of “biotinkering” on the non-institutional level. Our goal is to raise questions and discuss the way biotechnology is changing our society: What are its political, social, and even philosophical implications? What does this mean for average citizens and their future? How are “bioart” and biohacking practices affecting (will affect) the whole of society?¬†And most importantly, who gets access?”
