Part of the triptych video installation entitled “Works of Great Historical Importance in Public Understanding of Abstract Scientific Concepts”. Designed to be shown looped on an individual monitor, it is a tongue-in-cheek exploration of the interface between art, science and technology; made using deliberately clunky, lo-fi technology to highlight the fact that we are not really as advanced biotechnologically as we might sometimes like to think, and that, actually, we still have very little awareness of the processes taking place in the ironically man-made environment we inhabit.
