Saturday September 16, during the Night of Art and Science, Museum Boerhaave will present: Manufactured Nature.
Victor Frankenstein tried to imitate nature by creating a living creature. To what extent can we make a living cell or a better robot with current technologies? We live in the heyday of technological development. Robot technology is advancing rapidly and humans and nature are increasingly improved with the interference of technology. Where is the boundary for human being?
Under the guidance of Martijn van Calmthout (Volkskrant), and in the company of artists and other experts, AMOLF researchers prof. dr. Gijsje Koenderink and dr. Bas Overvelde discuss nature as an inspiration for cutting edge science.
