Eric Sanchez says regarding his project: “G.L.O. (Genetics, Light, Organisms) is an installation investigating cultural beliefs associated with biotechnology, control and access. G.L.O. is composed of bioluminescent bacteria, time-lapse video, and mixed media sculpture. Viewers are invited to interact with the installation by wearing latex gloves prior to seeing the room. The gloves are then disposed of in the biohazard container adjacent to the room. The bacteria Vibrio Fischeri, a naturally occurring marine bacteria, glowing gene has been isolated and injected in other bacterium and organisms to innovate research techniques. G.L.O. is an investigation the human desire to control and adapt our environment, Nature vs. Technology.”
