A stimulating day of talks at TEDxBrighton, by Storyteller & Technologist Natalie Kane.
This year Lighthouse was proud to sponsor TEDxBrighton, a one-day conference featuring a range of inspiring and innovative speakers with a connection to Brighton. Hosted at the Brighton Dome Corn Exchange, the conference included speakers from a variety of backgrounds, interests, disciplines and perspectives, whose talks focused on legacy, and what we are passing on to future generations.
Adam Rutherford: HELIX – a different way of looking at DNA
Helix tells the history of DNA from the perspective of a 500-year-old man kept alive by genetic therapy, with a story spanning 40,000 years – from ancient chimera, to modern-day spider goats, to speculated future human beings. Adam Rutherford tells us about his involvement with the project, alongside collaborators David Blandy and Daniel Locke and his interest in these biological (and hip-hop) remixes.
