S.O.1 : Synthetic Organism

Watercolour, gouache, pencil and ink on cardboard.

We are synthesizing DNA to create the first synthetic organism, a prototype of artificial life. SO1 has no specific function, but once it is alive we can customize it. We can go back to the computer, change a gene and create another variant. New life forms are generated by simply entering a sequence of keys.
