The main focus of our project lies in complexity. How does it emerge? How can we handle it? Additionally, what can we learn from it and how can we use it?
 +
 +
Our human practice project attempts to answer these questions by focusing on three different components: listening, discussing, and sharing.

The first component consists of a survey regarding complexity. By listening to the public we learn about the existing ideas of complexity and how people relate to it.

Our second component involves interviews with experts from different backgrounds. These discussions focus on the complexity existing in their field and how they deal with it which enables us to improve our understanding of complexity as a whole and how we could profit from this profound, interdisciplinary knowledge. The various methods of resolution are summarised and compared in an essay.

Finally, we impart or share knowledge via different platforms like high school lectures and science slams. Here, we aim to explain the fundamentals of synthetic biology and how it can be a way to approach complexity.
