Save Event: Life itself

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


Life itself…considering that the attempts to answer this question by occidental sciences and philosophies have proven unsatisfactory.


Ever since the days of Aristotle, life itself has remained a mystery, in spite of countless attempts by scientists and philosophers to come up with a definition. Despite contemporary advanced theories about complex systems and the vertiginous potential of synthetic biology, we are still unable to determine what constitutes life. An attempt to address the question by means of an art exhibition therefore seems justified, if only to demonstrate ways of dealing with our incapability to find a satisfactory answer.
