The following week will see the next Café Scientifique event. Ira Melkonyan will talk about BioArt, which WIRED magazine called one of the top 25 ideas of 2012. BioArt is when artists use living tissue or scientific lab equipment to create art. Ira is an artist from the rubberbodies collective with a masters in microbiology and virology, a unique combination perfectly suited for the topic.
