Completed shortly before the Coronavirus pandemic, this project presents a speculative future where trends in gene modification result in a virus that causes an individual to merge their DNA expression with any sexual partner.
I acted largely as a scientific adviser and trend analyst; providing insight into scientific and social trends that would inform such a future.
This was awarded a specially created prize by CERN and Logitech due to it's philosophical depth and worldbuilding.
