RomanTech – Collective Gallery, Edinburgh

RomanTech was a project done for the Collective gallery. The aim of the project was to open up discussion around genetically modified plants. To do this I worked with a geneticist on bringing a set of GM plants into the space. The plants, Arabidopsis Thaliana, were the first to have its entire genome mapped. A logo and some other designs were produced in vinyl. There was also a mural based on “The Wanderer in the Mist” by Casper David Friedrich. There was also a booklet produced. Some of the activities that occurred during the exhibition were a seminar with a geneticist, ecologist, and biologist. There was also a seminar with 6th year science students on ethics in science.
