Genetic snowball, flava sava

This is one of a thirteen part series of paintings which addressed the debate about genetic engineering which was in the public arena around 1998-2000. Flava sava is a painting of the variety of tomato which was crossbred with coldwater fish in order to prolong shelf life. In the series images from the debate are juxtaposed with images from the tarot, making the point that much of this manipulation was connected with fate.
