It is another to instill a poetic, literary consequence, bringing art to another level. Kac does this marvelously in "Move 36." BioArt may only hold promise if there is a sense of poetry, aesthetics, intelligence and meaning. Simply redesigning life to make it look different or using BioArt to blame capitalism, consumerism or the biotech industry for humanity's inability to think critically about its own conditions is, I believe, a sore use of BioArt when there is so much more than can be communicated to inform, protect and warn society about its possible foibles. Kac has an amazing ability to apply his vast talent to creating wonder, beauty, poetry, and intelligence. This speaks far wider and louder than being angry at the world and using art to blame. Thank you Eduardo - you are exemplar!
