Abstract: Bio art and Do-it-yourself biology have presented themselves as ground breaking new movements of the humanities working with the life sciences. They attempt to bring the scientific debate to the general public, both in their own way. However, are they really that different from each other in their attempt to break the scientific status quo, and with what means do they attempt to communicate with the general public? This paper will focus on the current status of bio art and DIY biology and their interaction with the general public, and explores the role of the academics in this situation.
