Coded Cultures Festival. Exploring Creative Emergences
Coded Cultures - Exploring Creative Emergences (Part of the Austria - Japan Year 2009) is exploring new artistic practices and creative ability profiles within media integrated project-cultures and digital media related arts. In the Presentation a special focus will be given the intersection of Art, Technology, Science and Design describing a type of artist which can not be described within disciplinary guidelines. From all participants we will present an essence with examples and cooperative partners who will be present at ISEA and part of the exhibition.

Common Flowers / White Out. Bio-hacking, Open-sourcing and Exorcising GM Flowers
Common Flowers / White Out aims to remove the genetic modification responsible to blue colour in Suntory's Moondust line of commercially available blue genetically-modified carnation and restore the flower to its original, natural, pure white state. This double genetic manipulation negates the original intention and serves to question concepts of change, nature, and manipulation in the ongoing discussions about biosciences and their implications in the wider social context.
Georg Tremmel studied Visual Media Art in Vienna and Interaction Design at the RCA. He is a founding member of the artistic collaborative research framework BCL and currently works as a Research at the University of Tokyo's Human Genome Centre at the Laboratory of DNA Information Analysis.
