Perceptions of Promise

Biotechnology, Society and Art

The rapid advances currently being made in biomedical research are challenging the ways we view our bodies and the environment. Perceptions of Promise arose from a workshop that brought together internationally recognized artists and biomedical scholars and scientists to explore questions surrounding stem cell research, public perceptions of biotechnology, and the parallels and differences between creative and scientific practices.

Perceptions of Promise includes artworks created in response to the workshop coupled with articles by world-renowned scholars and medical researchers. It offers a compelling glimpse into a unique collaboration between scientists, scholars, and artists in a visually engaging publication that challenges the reader to consider the possibilities of biotechnology and stem cell research.

Reviews

"There is a general tone of reflection, inquiry, and curiosity at work in this book which, when coupled with handsomely-produced imagery, could make this book particularly appealing to artists and non-artists alike."—Rosemary K. J. Davis, ARLIS/NA Reviews, March/April 2012
Department of Art and Design, University of Alberta
