“You can stop splitting the atom; you can stop visiting the moon; you can stop using aerosals; you may even decide not to kill entire populations by the use of a few bombs. But you cannot recall a new form of life. Once you have constructed a viable E. coli cell carrying a plasmid DNA into which a piece of eukaryotic DNA has been spliced, it will survive you and your children and your children's children. An irreversible attack on the biosphere is something so unheard-of, so unthinkable to previous generations, that I could only wish that mine had not been guilty of it.“...-- Erwin CHARGAFF, Biochemist, Genetic Science Pioneer
A and D Projects artwork concerns and shows concern for our environment and our place in the Cosmos.
The above still is from the A and D Projects' video "Cosmic Soup." As people cast shadows on our projection, we hope they sense that they are an integral part of the vastness of the Cosmos. Furthermore, we hope that it reminds them that what we do here on earth has repercussions far beyond what we can imagine.
The quote on your website by Erwin Chargaff, Biochemist, Genetic Science Pioneer, spoke to us and would be a perfect caption for this work with his permission. The food-linked metaphor of "cosmic soup" is quite appropriate for the potential "irreversible attack" of GMOs on our world that Erwin Chargaff expresses so eloquently.
The fabric with the night sky printed on it as it appeared to people on earth eons ago and as it appears to us now is 3 meters wide x 2+ meters high on which we project our interpretation of the atoms of creation or destruction depending on how you look at it.
