The Future of X: Allison Carruth on Art-Science Collaboration

More

"I see the future being one in which the arts reclaim their central role as interlocutor, critic, visionary, but also co-developer of technology," Carruth explains. In this short interview at the Aspen Ideas Festival, the UCLA professor describes cutting-edge, cross-disciplinary work being done at the intersection of biology, art, and ethics, with applications like in vitro meat. Since NASA began developing it in the 1970s, in vitro meat has presented an opportunity to combine science and culture to create a more ethical and resource-efficient food source. The Future of X, a new series on the Atlantic Video channel, looks at what's on the horizon for culture, technology, business, and politics.
