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.
