C-LAB's work explores a reproductive paradox in genetic engineering to introduce hair keratin genes into cells of cacti.
"Bioart is an alternative exploration that diverge aims conventionally found in disciplines. For me, it is the metamorphosing of an idea into our world, allowing art to become living and part of our communication. The Cactus Project is not just about the scientific output (tools and processes); it’s also to do with the interaction the work has with our culture." Interview with Laura Cinti and Howard Boland from C-LAB on We make money not art.
