VER.II EXHIBITION 2021
︎ RELATED PROJECT I (2018)
CRISPR CAS 9 (Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats) is a DNA editing tool, which people call scientist’s potential secret weapon for treating heritage diseases like Sickle-Cell Anemia and Muscular Dystrophy. But the usage of CRISPR CAS 9 raise lots of ethical issues as it can be misused such as designing embryo before birth (designer baby) which may cause new social hierarchy and ecological disequilibrium...
“...designers should value more importance on future speculations being physical and critical for people to use and also build upon designing new ideas instead of “things”. Creating works that could exist only in our future by asking a lot of “what if” questions that makes people think of futures they want or the futures they want to escape from or the future that might happen to us is one of the goals.”
