hi there, my name is nemo and i’m an artist based in zurich. I would like to realize my project for the transdisciplinary master in the opensciencelab. i’ve already spoken with marc and he mentioned the forum to get in touch with you all.
my goal is to cultivate my own muscle cells to get a piece of meat (which i could eat in the end).
it would be a further development of an older artpiece i did: https://vimeo.com/416894306
I’m new in the field of cell cultivation and i would like to start from scratch, building the needed equipment by my own, co2 incubator, microscope etc. Im not in a hurry, the master takes two years, probably i will start with animal cells to practice and to understand the procedures of tissue engineering better.
I’m open for suggestions how to realize the project, maby there are alternative ways to do it? (tissue recellularization? “meatberry”) or a solution without fetal calf serum?
And does anyone know a good book for me to enter the field of cell culture/tissue engineering/in vitro meat? preferably in german
im looking forward to your feedback.<3
