Future Bodies (Decellularisation)
Saturday 21 June, 1-5pm (adults and 11+)
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.
