Human Genome re-Activation
on-line live Perfromance

Performing Arts
Low Lives 3 International Festival of Live Networked Performances 2011

I lost one finger (the pinky from my right hand) when I was 8 years old.
The performance is about "to read or to transmit" to my hand -in form of
audio - fragments of the human genome. The idea is to "activate" -through
sounds- the DNA-knowledge about how to make a new finger.
The running time (activation) of the performance is 3 minutes.
