This is an interactive exhibition for visitors and people involved in workshops. The exhibition crosses into science, creative writing and some of the ethical issues raised in cloning and epigenetics. Karl's experiences as a researcher and medical doctor are emeshed into a working exhibition, meaning people can get involved in some of the art pieces. The work is a combination of drawings, printmaking, floor installation and games.

In 2015 much of our travels were centred on visiting museums and sites that were connected to the theme of our 2016 exhibition, "Animals and the DNA of Life".
We visited museums, galleries, animal natural reserves and archaeological dig sites across Singapore, Ethiopia, Botswana, France, Ireland, Amsterdam and Israel.
We saw some amazing exhibitions across the countries which we have learnt much from. Ethiopia's museum holds "Lucy", the oldest known human remains, and the museum has much to offer regarding the beginnings of man/womankind. In Singapore we saw an amazing exhibition about the "Deep Sea" and all of the unusual creatures that we know little about and that are part of our system of life. In France we visited Monet's gardens and his works, along with many other galleries and museums. One in particular was the Cathedral that has Rouault's stained glass. We spent time in Israel and in Chagall's initial commune for artists and visited his stained glass window in a nearby hospital. In Botswana we spent time on the Delta in an open animal reserve where we nearly got "finished off" by a very angry hippo!
During the whole travelling time Christina drew and prepared work at every conceivable little table and tent that allowed space.
We spent two months researching and collecting materials for the up and coming exhibition, and we will be busy for the next few months working on the material and developing it into works for schools, workshops and an exhibition.
We are currently working on our next exhibition, which will be 2017-2018. In April 2016 we visited Prague, Dresden, Berlin, Budapest, Vienna and Bratislava to work on the new ideas. We visited many galleries and science museums and fell in love with the work of Kieffer ...once again. During 2016-2017 we will be presenting "Animals and the DNA of life" across a number of galleries.
