This class is to investigate the artificial life and bioart with multilateral interpretations and approaches related to new media in art, technology and culture. In the class, we are trying to find out how major and critical terms in media studies apply biotechnology in terms of artificial life and bioart. Artistic experiments, technologists’ approaches and other ambiguous researchers’ experimental aesthetics are discussed in the study. Furthermore, we will focus on transdisciplinary researches beyond multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary studies. While the class is based on textbooks, we will expand the content following each researcher's interest using footnotes and bibliographies.
