Mary Tsang: “DIYSECT: Filming Biotinkering for the Web”

Mary Tsang (UC Los Angeles): $1,000 for DIYSECT: Filming Biotinkering for the Web. Mini-Grant.

DIYSECT is a 7-episode documentary series on do-it-yourself biology and the biology-art intersection. Our goal is to analyze the way biotechnology is changing our society: What are its political, social, and even philosophical implications? What happens when manipulating life becomes as simple as writing a line of code? And most importantly, who gets access? UCIRA funds will go towards the completion of episodes 2, 3, & 4 in preparation for an official film screening at the UCLA Art|Sci Center.
