Utilizing simple tools found on the computer this work exploits the rollover image effect. The results vary from simple and colorful exchanges to complete and often surreal transformations and their associated meaning(s)...all with a simple hoover, click (or two) and zoom. Statement:Options, choices, dilemmas. Coincidental with the digital


revolution... in which anything and everything that you can see, hear, smell, touch and taste


will be digitally commodified and easily reproduced and/or altered...is the genetic revolution.


Which in time will reveal the human genome (substitute chimpanzee genome...substitute sheep


genome...substitute fruit fly genome...substitute plant genomes) to be the ultimate commodified


digital template. Nature clones by definition. We clone for fun. We clone by imitation. Get over


the horror and come clone with me.


Art Description: Utilizing simple tools found on the computer I have


mildly exploited the rollover image effect. The results vary from simple and colorful exchanges


to complete and often surreal transformations and their associated meaning(s)...all with a


simple hoover, click (or two) and zoom. The future is choice and everyone will need to be an artist/editor.
