carrier (1999)

carrier investigates viral symbiosis in the biological and virtual domains by weaving an intimate love story between the viewer and the hepatitis C virus.

The site integrates artificial and viral intelligence with immune system and computer operating system discourse within the swarming electronically networked nervous system of our planet - the world wide web, immersing the viewer in vrml worlds, shockwave games and java generated textual landscapes.

sHe - the intelligent viral agent - crosses our species boundary, penetrating our cellular core, repositioning viral infection as positive biological merging with the flesh.

We become symborg as the boundaries between human / machine / species dissolve
