The lecture will give an introduction to the emerging field of do it yourself science and its relations to the arts, and take a closer look at the creative impulses generated by the interdisciplinary collaborations of both professionals and amateurs.

Within this field, the main focus will be directed towards "life sciences" and biology, and to the intersections of DIY BIO(SCIENCE) and BIO ART, to discuss potentials as well as problems we may encounter here. Last but not least, special attention with be devoted to OS (open source) approaches to the field.
