Jen Bervin is an interdisciplinary artist and poet whose works weaves together art, writing, science, and her own life. Bervin will discuss her project Silk Poems, poems written in nanoscale in the form of a silk biosensor. Consulting nanotechnology and biomedical labs, she fabricated a silk film with poems written in a six-character chain that corresponds to human DNA.
