Das GESPENST

Robert B. Lisek who since many years has been dealing with software art, this time applies the technique of molecular biology by analyzing
the most fundamental process in the nature - selfreplication that means exponential grow and spreading of structures. He especially focus on DNA selfreplication.
As result of his research  in conjunction with Molecular Biology Lab at Wroclaw University he generated the new gender of the bacterium E-coli [1XkZF no name yet],that quickly spreads in the water.
He also prepared a map/graph that represent the best way to infect Warsaw city. The map provides an understanding of how &#8216;pathogens&#8217; (in this case the artist&#8217;s E-coli bacteria)
spread and the connections between multiple biological and communicative networks. In graphic terms, a narrative of bacterial infection demonstrates how easily new dangerous bacteria strands can
be grown and how quickly they might spread in a metropolis such as Warsaw[the graph is computed so that nodes show stations of water cleansing and weighted links represent power of water flow].
This radical project in which author deals with genes hacking, DNA self-replication and shows scenario of bioterrorism attack of Warsaw will be presented
as installation and exhibition of graphs/maps in the Leto Gallery.
