Seth Harrison is an entrepreneur in biotechnology and culture, and co-founder of Harrison Atelier, a Brooklyn-based design firm whose architecture, performance and design works explore the impact of technology on culture. He conceived of the performance installation series on which Harrison Atelier is now embarked (Anchises 2010, Pharmacophore 2011, Veal 2013), and is responsible for writing and directing the works. Seth’s role in shaping Harrison Atelier's thought-into-action approach to posthumanism derives from his work with new technologies. He founded Apple Tree Partners in 1999, a firm that creates companies in the life sciences. Seth received his MFA in writing (fiction concentration) at Columbia University’s School of the Arts (2010) and has completed a novel titled Gaining Purchase, now being agented. He has published on performance and posthumanism in anthologies and architecture journals. Seth received his MD and MBA from Columbia University and completed his surgery internship at New York Presbyterian Hospital.
