Biological structures have inspired artists and have been the object of artistic expression for centuries. Nevertheless, in the last decades, artists have started to collaborate with biologists to create works of art that use biological materials and human remains as artistic media. This new form of art, BioArt, stands at the intersection of various fields of science, art and society and brings with it a range of social, religious, cultural and ethical issues because biomaterials although tangible, are also vectors of strong intangible values and meaningful ideas. The need felt for cultural and artistic response to the development of these emerging areas, suggests their impact on the development of social, ethical, philosophical and cultural position.
