Decellularisation is a process where organs are stripped back leaving only the structure, which could potentially be used as a scaffold for transplant organs. Join London DIY Biohack group ‘The Kitchen’, Dr Mark Clements and Broad Vision students, to learn how artists and scientists are using this new technique, observe a live decellularisation of a heart, and have a go at making artwork with strips of decellularised bacon, dyes and glitter. Let your imagination run wild with a totally new art medium and learn about this amazing biotechnology technique. Book HERE.

Write up of Broad Vision interdisciplinary learning seminar

Write up, by Jo Keogh, of the Broad Vision interdisciplinary learning seminar held at University of Westminster on 20 November 2013.

“The exciting element of the Broad Vision project is that it allows artists and scientists to have a truly organic and original collaboration… The richness of the project stems from the continual conversation from start to finish and, from hearing the accounts of participating students, this has not only been inspiring and dynamic, it has been practice changing.”
