SNU Co-Hosts Bio Art Contest
SNU Co-Hosts Bio Art Contest
May 21, 2014 SNU Medicinal Bioconvergence Research Center (Biocon) is co-hosting the ‘2014 Bio-Art Contest’ with the company SeouLin Bioscience. This year’s topic is ‘life and creation’, and contestants are encouraged to submit works of art in any form –- including fine art, visual design, photography, and photomicrography. Professor Sung Hoon KIM, head of Biocon, stated that “bio-art is virtually unlimited, as we can find it in our everyday lives. It does not have to follow the expressive techniques of art, or the experimental method of science. We hope that we can share beauty found in every living thing itself.” Submissions can be made from May 20 to August 14, and the award winning works will be displayed in a bio-art exhibition in October. more
