About

Kate O’Riordan is a Reader in Digital Media at the University of Sussex.

Biodigital lives brings together her current projects and past work with stuff she thinks is interesting and news, ideas, resources and commentary on the theme of biodigital lives.

Biodigital lives can be thought of as bits of life at the intersection of digital media and biotechnology. Many bits of our lives, and those of other lively beings are caught up in databases, online profiles, DNA scans, informational lives, and the life of information.

Biotechnological artefacts like genomes and DNA scans are shared as digital media forms and these intersect with our engagement with media.  Health, leisure, entertainment, politics, opportunity and disaster are caught up together in biodigital forms.
