The class, called Zoethica: Bioinspired Art and Science, is part of Peter Krsko’s semester-long commitment to UW–Madison as the Art Institute’s spring Interdisciplinary Artist in Residence. Krsko chose the name Zoethica, a combination of the Greek word for life (zoe) and the word ethical, because his goal during his residency is “to explore bioinspired art and technology, not only from the aesthetic and scientific point of view, but also to explore the ethical implications.”
