Audiolats art

The artist Howard Boland presents his project Cellular Propeller, not achieved at the time of the recording, and that consists of propelling an artificial object, namely a small wheel, with human sperm cells in a synthetic biology artwork. He discusses the ethical and aesthetical issues related to the creation of this work as well as his creative process.
