“Semi-Human Vase” connects art and science

Dan Jing Wu and prof. Patricia Dankers teamed up with artist Hongjie Yang in a project where science meets art. HeLa cells were cultured on 3D printed vases and stained blue, to create the Delft-blue appearance. Three replicas are shown in the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris as part of the exhibition ‘La fabrique du vivant’ from February 20th until April 15th 2019. The project was featured in the following articles, and short videos:
