Professor Kathleen Rogers, will introduce the timeline of her earliest projects to the more recent that reflect on emergent scientific technologies and their impact on human identity and society. Kathleen Rogers is a London-based researcher and artist working with digital media, video, sound, photography and installation. Her media art practice intersects multiple disciplines, informed by an interest in social, political and cultural issues in our converging technological landscape and the modification of biological matter through nanotechnology and gene transfer. Her research has contributed to debates in contemporary biotechnological discourse that challenge assumed boundaries between human and non-human entities in synthetic biology.
