Can we design life itself? The emerging field of synthetic biology crosses the boundary between science and design to manipulate the stuff of life. These new designers see life as a programmable material, creating new organisms with radical applications from materials to machines. April’s Friday Late turns London’s V&A Museum into a living laboratory, bringing science and design together for one night of events, workshops and installations, each exploring our biological future.


The evening will feature the book launch of ‘Synthetic Aesthetics: Investigating Synthetic Biology’s Designs on Nature’, by Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg, Jane Calvert, Pablo Schyfter, Alistair Elfick and Drew Endy, published by The MIT Press.
