Dear friends,

(sorry for x-posting, please forward to those interested)

This coming Thursday September 12, at 20.00, we have the pleasure of inviting you to join us for a lecture presentation by Symbiotica researcher Guy Ben-Ary and his work on the project CellF. CellF is an installation containing a synthesizer made of the cultured human neuron cells. CellF will be shown at Today’s Art Festival 2018 the week after and Guy will talk about the work on the cell cultures he did in the lab at the academic hospital in Leiden as he was not able to bring living cells from Australia where he is based other then those his own body is made of. Apart from CellF he will also talk about and show his new work on cardiac muscle cells.

Originally the event was meant to be a hands-on activity with the public but due to needed safety arrangements and permits we decided to cancel this. In addition to Guy Ben-Ary's lecture, Prof. Dr. Eric Danen, in whose lab at the Academic Medical Centre of Leiden Ben-Ary currently works, will present his work on 2D and 3d tissue modelling to understand cancer metastasis and therapy resistance. In addition we have conversation about the work and its artistic context with Today’s Art Festival director Olof van Winden and Waag’s Bio Safety Officer Per Staugaard. Moderation Lucas Evers, Waag.

We look forward to welcoming you Thursday at 20.00 at Waag, Nieuwmarkt 4, Amsterdam

On behalf of Waag and Today’s Art Festival The Hague, all my best,
