观众(参与者)可以下载网站上某生物(例如一支蜘蛛)的分子,该分子的基因可能会被观众自己电脑中的病毒所感染,也可以由观众所修改。当该分子被传回网站主机时,该蜘蛛由于基因被重组,其外观、习性等就会发生变化。

Molecular Clinic 1.0

During DEAF95, Seiko Mikami (USA) presents “Molecular Clinic 1.0”, a WWW project that was developed for Tokyo”s ArtLab. In this work Seiko Mikami intends to illustrate the recent theory in molecular biology that every natural molecular structure in the world can be replicated artificially via the manipulation of the molecular chain. The project does not limit itself to relaying static information to be viewed by the onlooker, but takes on its meaning from the interaction of users worldwide who manipulate and change the project in unexpected and random ways. The word clinic in this case also means inspection or exchange. In the process of exchanging a molecule between the homepage and the user”s computer, the individual molecule will be inspected on the user”s side. Sometimes a molecule will be infected with a virus or the user may treat and even repair a molecule. When it is uploaded back to the host, this exchange will result in manipulations that will alter the structure of the work as a whole. “
