The work addresses genetic determinism, representation, network infrastructure and privacy using a range of digital techniques to reflect on technology. Current technological approaches are characterised by an aspiration to map the world in order to achieve a full quantification of reality, reducing the subject to mere data or a collection of commodified objects. The installation uses a range of technological tools (VR, DNA analysis, AI, photography) and aims to present the outcomes of my theoretical research through a personal journey.
