George Gessert is an artist whose work focuses on the overlap between art and genetics. His exhibits often involve plants he has hybridized or documentation of breeding projects. His writings have appeared in Leonardo, Art Papers, Design Issues, Massachusetts Review, Hortus and other publications. He was included in Best American Essays in 2007 and has won a Pushcart Prize. In 2010, Gessert published Green Light: Toward an Art of Evolution (MIT Press), a book about bio art, covering subjects such as exhibiting flowers as fine art and art using plants, animals, bacteria, slime molds and fungi. In it, he examines the role aesthetic perception has played in bio art and other interventions in evolution.
