of my favorite links on the topic of genetic arts:
This website is unbelievable. I did not think that a male pregnancy
was possible. However, when I looked more into the site, I began
to believe that maybe this website is real because it was so scientific.
There was coverage of a lot of information on this pregnant man.
There were various pictures and articles on this story. However,
even though the site does not say that this is a hoax. I've come
to believe that it is because I went to Time and cnn.com to find
the various articles, but they did not appear. I guess this is a
form of art work that is truly amazing for a man to come up with
this idea with complete detail. Could there be a time in the future
when males can become pregnant? This is hard to believe, but I remember
someone telling me that it would be impossible because males don't
have the necessary organs.
We as different races are so similar in many ways. We share 99.9%
of our genetic material and "there's no one gene for race." This
link informs us about the Human Race Machine, which morphs a person
into five different races: Asian, Caucasian, African, Eastern Indian,
and Latina. There's a picture of a woman who appears as five different
races; however, the only thing that seems to change in each face
is the hue. I thought that this link was amazing by the fact that
the lady appears to be different races by just changing her hue.
Our society tends to link race by the color of our skin.
This site was very interesting. This site may be true for the future
to come. On this site, we are able to create a child by selecting
various genes to create a unique child of our choice. With the new
technology that we are coming up with these days, this site could
actually be our reality. However, many questions arise. Is this
way of making a child ethical? What is the perfect child? Perfection
is in the eye of the beholder.
This link is quite interesting. A male's face can be morphed into
a female's face at a slow changing rate, which is controlled by
the participant. Different commands are asked, such as, find the
healthiest or most attractive looking female. This link illustrates
how everyone has a different perception for certain aspects of the
human facial form.
This site is an electrical version of the game telephone. An image
is sent to a person, in which the person can add or take out different
aspects of the original image. Then the image is passed to another
person. The series goes on to include a total of 20 different images.
This project illustrates how one idea can be altered into various
different representations depending on the person's choice of change.
