therefore I am - project description

 

"therefore I am" is a project on the topic of prenatal diagnostics - the measurement of a human before birth. Since just a few years it is possible to retrieve the DNA of a fetus, by analyzing the mothers blood. What consequences and ethical questions unravel for society, as scientists encode our DNA further and further? Doesn't the life of a fetus get sketched out ever more clearly, as we measure more precisely? Is a fetus not becoming a human beeing, when it's looks, it's ability to move and love and work become measurable? This fictional measuring instrument was created to form a narrative, that let's the visitor engage with the subject.
