How does society connect to and manipulate living matter and how can we explore this through film and virtual games?
Cambridge Stem Cell Institute and the Department of Sociology bring you an interactive panel discussion exploring the relationship between researchers and the living materials they study.
Living materials are fragile and challenging to handle. What is it like to work with them every day? We’ll explore this question in the context of stem cell research, with a focus on cell cultures in a dish. We’re going to ask for your input, as we present a prototype of a virtual game designed to bring cell culture into your living room! The night will close with a private screening of award-winning short film Dish Life, accompanied by a wine reception.
Visitors are asked to ensure children less than 16 years old are accompanied by an adult/carer at all times. Unaccompanied children will not be admitted into Festival events.
