Drawings on a chalkboard illustrate a century of mutations on the fruitfly drosophila. On one inset monitor, two fruitflies are involved in a mating dance. On the other, a biochemist offers them genetic counseling, in a humorous, slightly macabre, unrehearsed diatribe. Commissioned for Paradise Now: Picturing the Genetic Revolution, curated by Carole Kismaric and Marvin Heiferman.
