Lucas Evers joined Waag in April 2007 and is currently leading Waag’s Wetlab. He is actively involved in several projects that concern the interactions between the arts and sciences, arts and ethics and the arts in a contemporary makers culture.
The Wetlab is a laboratory where arts, design, sciences, engineering and the public meet to research biotechnologies and their impact on society and ecology.
Evers worked and works on projects such as Trust me I’m an Artist (ethics of art and science collaboration), Future Emerging Art and Technologies, Hack the Brain, Do It Together Bio, Critical Making and initiated Designers and Artists for Genomics Award (now Bio Art & Design Award).
His interests lie in the way we can learn from the interactions, the differences and similarities, between artistic, scientific and other cultures of research.
