Artist Statement:


    The Transgenic Bagel is an interactive computer-assisted artwork based on a gene splicing theme. The initial interaction, affecting the sound component, occurs when participants “play” a simulated slot machine to “win” a character trait. This gene trait, excised from a mythological animal residing in Noah’s virtual ark, is processed, engineered, and impregnated into a DNA plasmid bagel. Participants can accept the gene by eating the transgenic bagel, or trade the trait. How they plan to use it is another interactive feature.
