Human Genome re-Activation
Low Lives 3
I lost a finger (the little finger of my right hand) when I was 8 years old. The performance is about reading or transferring fragments of the human genome to my hand
in the form of sound. The idea is to «activate» – through sound – the DNA knowledge of how to make a new finger.
