Sophia Roosth: Crafting Life: A Sensory Ethnography of Fabricated Biologies (2010)

Info

"This ethnography tracks a diverse set of practices I term 'constructive biologies,' by which I mean efforts in the post-genomic life sciences to understand how biology works by making new biological things. I examine five fields of constructive biology - synthetic biology, DIY biology, hyperbolic crochet, sonocytology, and molecular gastronomy - investigating how they are enmeshed in sensory engagements that employ craftwork as a means of grasping biology.
