Manipulating genes, experiencing evolution

Painting With Natural Selection from Carnegie Mellon’s STUDIO for Creative Inquiry is a multi-player experience in which kids and parents interact with a projecting of a simple organism and manipulate its environment to help (or hinder) its growth and evolution. The installation plays out different scenarios where a virtual organism has access to different reproductive strategies, allowing the user to study their role in evolution.
