Van Goghs Ear regrown from Van Gogh-DNA

Im ZKM Karlsruhe haben sie Biomasse aus genetischem Material von Van Goghs Ur-Ur-Ur-Neffen gezüchtet und daraus sein abgeschnittenes Ohr auf einem 3D-Drucker ausgegeben. Man kann mit dem Ding sprechen, die Audiosignale werden in Echtzeit in Sinnes-Stimulation konvertiert.

In Sugababe, Diemut Strebe, together with scientists, has regrown Vincent van Gogh’s ear. […]

The ear is grown from tissue engineered cartilage and is “identical” in shape to van Gogh’s ear by using computer imaging technology. It is composed of living cells that contain natural genetic information about him as well as engineered components, replicating in the ear as a “living art-piece”. […]

You can talk to the ear. The input sound is processed by a computer using software that converts it to simulate nerve impulses in real time.

ZKM: May 30−July 6, 2014 – Diemut Strebe: Sugababe
