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.
