Prof. John Hunt and I gave an interview for a radio broadcast on Resonance FM (an art radio station based in London and broadcasting over the internet). This is the 10th episode in their “artists in labs” series hosted by Régine Debatty (blogger at http://we-make-money-not-art.com).

Every week, on Artists in Laboratories, Régine Debatty discusses with an artist, a hacker, a designer or a scientist about about creative ways to explore science and technology. In this episode, we are talking to artist John O’Shea and to Professor John Hunt from Liverpool University about Pigs Bladder Football, a work that looks back at the time when football balls were made from pigs bladder. For the project, however, the artist collaborated with a group of scientists to replicate the techniques used to create artificial human organs and engineer balls using animal cells harvested from abattoir waste.
