To me it's an attitude.

It's 17 year olds sitting in basements reverseengineerning bacteria with second hand dna-synthesizers. They do it because they are curious and think it's cool. They are good at it. They don´t care too much about what people say can and can't be done. Or how things are supposed to be done, or even laws always. It's that attitude.

As opposed to the rigidity of academia and corporations.

It's the attitude of a 23 year old James Watson snooping through the papers of Rosalind Franklin.

To me Biopunk has a big art aspect also.

I like this one



It's made by Xefirotarch a Los Angeles based architectural firm.

It´s beautiful and I think we´ll see more art like that in the future.
