Hybrid Beings: life in Robots


Inspired by my research of the potentials for life in robots I made this project for one of my classes. Using crafts like tissue paper, aluminum foil, and printed paper I made a nucleus and used the metal wire chromosomes (brought up in an earlier post) to act as electrically conductive circuits in my piece. What showed up on the screen when completing a circuit was information about the computer being used. I wanted to talk about computers have traits written in their software that could be associated with a location on the chromosome (like genes code for a particular trait). What do you think? Is it too far of a stretch?
