Are we human? – 3rd Istanbul Design Biennial
The Protocol

This video speculates on a fictional process whereby homunculi are grown from bacterial cellulose.  Pre-designed emotional data is fed into the bacterial cells, within the well-being parameters.  However, this sample has been infected during cultivation and developed excessive anxiety, manifested by the mutated body shape. The mutant is thus discarded.

The film is a collaborative work of Victoria Geaney, Caroline Yan Zheng, Tim Newton and Sarah Sajid http://arewehuman.iksv.org/open-call/
