This works is based in genetic manipulation of DNA and the use of hosts to produce clones. I decided to 'clone' myself in a hologram alluding to the digitalisation of society through the Internet. For this work, Internet is the 'host' where people have their own 'alter-ego' or 'avatar' which remains eternally in the Network. This was for me, a way to see this situation of cloning as a virtual immortality.
