Emilia Tikka selected for the Tokyo Art & Science Research Residency
POSTED BY ERICH BERGER ON 7 MARCH 2019 at Bioartsociety Website:
Our open call for the Tokyo Art & Science Research Residency 2019 hosted by BioClub Tokyo in partnership with the Finnish Institute in Japan for Finnish and Finland based artists was answered with more then 20 excellent applications. We thank everybody who applied for their effort. The selection commitee consisted of members of the BioClub Tokyo, the Finnish Institute in Japan and Bioartsociety. After a careful reviewing process the commitee unanimously selected designer and filmmaker Emilia Tikka for the residency. Emilia is interested in the philosophical and societal implications of "prolonged life". In her residency she will focus on the genome editing technology CRISPR and the Yamanaka factors in pluripotent stemcells within the longevity discourse.
