Tissue Culture and Art Project

The Tissue Culture & Art (TC&A) Project is an Australian organisation which, true to its name, investigates the use of tissue cultivation in relation to art.

Previous projects have included the creation of an artificial ear for implantation into the arm of the Australian performance artist Stelarc; here TC&A cultivate a miniature coat as a potential alternative to animal leather.
