Prototype for a Universal Ideology

Prototype for a Universal Ideology (2000-2003) was a participatory interactive project where participants could capture a theory about life and then recombine it with other users' theories to create a universal ideology.

The spoken theory of each user becomes the raw material for a process analogous to the genetic recombination of DNA. The audio waveforms are broken down into fragments and rearranged with the phrases of other users. Users can breed different theories together and decide which new recombinant theories survive and consequently how they develop over time.
