the race

With all this in mind, my work offers an alternative choice to our current perception of genetic engineering. I am not suggesting that we abandon the scientific and technological development we have achieved as a species but I am re-evaluating the context, intention and spirit in which it is employed. In response to this I have created a fictitious healthcare approach, called the Biophilia Clinic which is designed for the human super-organism and evolving symbiotically with our ‘old-friends’.  Through the clinic I have attempted to create a vision of an alternative to our species self-obsessed, superior, isolated and destructive nature. I ask the viewer to abandon any denial of being animals, to accept they are part of a complex ecological web with other organisms and to reconsider themselves as a human habitat.
