Keynote talk by multimedia artist Lynn Fellman for Minneapolis DNA Days
Do you know why some people are 1 to 4% Neandertal? Lynn Fellman explains how your Uncle Ned and maybe you have an "Inner Neander" during her art and science talk on April 28th. The presentation is one of many talks at Twin City libraries to celebrate National DNA Days.
"Your Inner Neandertal" is a 30 minute presentation showing how art can uniquely express science concepts and why some of us may find a little "Neander" in our genes. With examples from "At the Crossroads" video and DNA Portrait traveling show, Fellman explains how some genes may be a surprising and generous gift from our ancient and now extinct cousins.
