Abstract (English)

"Perceptions of Promise: Biotechnology, Society and Art is an interdisciplinary and collaborative project that brings together a group of internationally recognized artists and social commentators (e.g. philosophers, sociologists, legal scholars, scientists) in order to produce a body of original art work and accompanying essays exploring the complex legal, ethical and social issues associated with advancements made in life science technologies with a particular focus on stem cell research. The artists featured in this publication participated in the original Perception of Promise exhibition, then continued to draw on the interdisciplinary experiences from the project for motivation in their studio practice." -- page 5.
