Defining himself as a curator interested in transgenre aesthetics and art and technology, art curator Jens Hauser engages a discussion with Danielle Aviles, student in biology; on the relationships between art and science. He defines what ‘Wetware’ - the title of the exhibition he curated with David Familian (2016) - is, as an extrapolation of softwares and hardwares, a convergence between technologies, or an evolution of mixed-media. With the rise of synthetic biology, the aim is to apply engineering principles to the biological realm and create aliveness from scratch. Do art and science deal with the same medium?
