Xeni visits a tissue culturing workshop at Machine Project in Los Angeles. Oron Catts and Ionat Zurr of the bio-art collective SymbioticA in Australia teach us how to extract stem cells from bovine bones, and grow a clump of tasty tissue, some spare ears, or a set of pig wings in a petri dish -- in just 9 short months.
