Bio Art & Design Award: Open Call

Gerrit Rietveld reissued, a virtual reality gender swap, NASA in art and more in our weekly look at the web

Art and science are often perceived as mutually exclusive, especially within the public education system. The newly renamed Bio Art & Design Award, however, is offering €25,000 grants to the top three ideas that “push the boundaries of research application and creative expression,” and is encouraging designers and artists to delve into the latest research in the life sciences. Past winners included a “bulletproof skin” project that raised ethical questions about the advancement of technological innovations. Send in submissions by 2 February 2014—or start planning for next year’s competition—and get a leg up by learning more about the awards through We Make Money Not Art’s behind-the-scenes interview.
