Subjective Error
“Why is genome editing (mainly in humans) needed? “

The work explores the issue surrounding genome editing. The basis of this need is the subjective desire to "want to be better" by regarding the difference from others and the dissociation from the ideal as an "error" from a subjective point of view. Furthermore, those individuals' recognition may have a perspective that leads not only to problems related to genome editing but also to diversity and the desire for plastic surgery. In this work, genetic code is used, and the recognition of "error" based on this individual's point of view is incorporated into the work from the point of view of "programming error".

Potential installation view (3D clay/print) in progress
(Depending on the research of the genomic data, the visualization and installation will change)
-This is the potential shape of 3D clay or 3D print.
- The shape will change depending on the result of genomic data. 
In this work, potentially using the "The genetic codes" that exists in almost all living things, the concept of programming (which captures various data and presents the results of accumulation and calculation) is regarded as the accumulation of human evolution, through the task (performance) of editing/ varying the results produced by the evolution (programming), the work examines the notion of "editing" based on desires and what we recognize as "errors".
Also, I started examining the material of 3D clay.
