The walk-through installation "Identity Analysis"
is an abstraction of the human DNA code consisting of four thousand test
tubes filled with fluorescein solution. This installation, which presents
the artist as a readable code, can be regarded as a metaphor of the architecture
of human beings. The genetic structure of the artist was transformed into
a transparent, fragile, walk-through sense space which incorporates visual,
acoustic, haptic and dynamic elements.
Fluorescein, which is used both in science and in medical
research, glows when irradiated with ultraviolet light, giving out a mysterious
green light. The actual genetic code is contained in the petri dishes
on the floor - like the bar-codes used to identify and control goods.
In this installation I reveal myself, displaying my genetic
structure, the most personal information of any individual and allows
the visitors to enter the innermost sphere of my being.
This installation breaks with the traditional representation
of the body, by allowing the visualisation of nanoworlds and the interchange
of visible perceptible worlds. Identity Analysis is a transparent container
of fluids defined by the intimate perspective of an electron microscope.
