The novel gene editing technology CRISPR-cas9 allows fast and precise applications to cut, alter and repair genes of all living entities including humans. Artist and Designer Emilia Tikka invites you to speculate about the possible futures of gene-editing. The workshop will start with an introduction about speculative design as a method, following with few words about the novel gene-editing technology CRISPR-cas9. After the introduction, the participants are divided into smaller groups to create their own scenarios in a hands-on prototyping session. After the session, the scenario prototypes created will be discussed and analyzed together.
