Man-Made Nature

Come and meet the people trying to create brand new life here on Earth.

Life on Earth has taken millions of years to evolve, but can we skip this process and make new life from scratch? Do we have the knowledge and technology to redesign nature? And what would this new life look like?

The possibility of creating new forms of life challenges our understanding and definition of what life can be, and has the potential to change the world as we know it.

After last month's Nature Live Nights discussion on the search for life elsewhere in the Universe, come and meet the people trying to create brand new life here on Earth. Join speculative designers, artists and scientists to find out about synthetic biology and reflect on the cultural changes this technology might drive in our society.

Part of Nature Live Nights.
