Science LinX, the University of Groningen science centre, presented the Enhance Me!? exhibition at Groningen’s Noorderzon arts festival (16-26 August). The exhibition was in the Qu3 pavilion, a cube filled with scientific exhibits.
Enhance Me!? featured a simulation of how our walk changes with age, a transformation module that merged the faces of visitors with those of celebrities such as Beyoncé or Charles Darwin and an explanation of genetic doping.
