Introduction: Living-Tweaks

An initiative to examine a series of future scenarios in which synthetic biology and nano-engineering practices are easily accessible to non-experts. This research project by the Extrapolation Factory is intended to collect, investigate, and visualize diverse potentials around this premise through the eyes of individuals.

The custom made kit contains tools, props, and snacks for each extrapolation session. Respondents explore the world of synthetic biology and nanotechnology, and imagine new and unexpected future needs.
