Selfish Gene Mirror

Selfish Gene Mirror is the another of Rozin’s investigation into the mechanism of biological evolution as a basis for image creation. This piece looks into the Neo-Darwinistic theory described in Richard Dawkins’ book “The Selfish Gene”. The theory proposes that evolutionary change is caused by “selfish genes” whose sole motivation is to propagate in the gene population. Similarly, in the piece, the genes are visualized as tiny color lines that compete in their success at adopting the color of the likeness of the viewer. The result is a colorful effect resembling water colors that spread throughout the screen perpetually laboring to update the image of the viewer. (https://vimeo.com/287667969)
