Ocular Revision

Paul Vanouse (US)
Award of Distinction Hybrid Art

“Ocular Revision” is a performative biotechnological art installation in the form of a live scientific experiment in which DNA segments are processed into images and patterns by a device developed by the artist himself. This technically demanding work is a critical confrontation with a highly controversial subject—the so-called genetic fingerprint or genetic portrait, the purportedly unalterable proof of identity that Mother Nature is said to have inscribed into each human body.
