In light of the recent events around the altering of the human genome, Chromey is a short story reflecting on the altered world of chromosomes. It follows the life of the targeted classes of chromosomes and their interactions as they face-off against the “KRS-per.”
The approach in this piece is to rethink the basic science that serves as a foundation for medical industries, reshaping their role as a medium for discussing the value of human-life in design. While this work is outside the interpretation of human-scale in design, it is primarily a commentary on storytelling and the associated scales of health perception that recapitulate current models of compliance through deception. Our interest in challenging the normative approach to discussions of human-scale affords us a way of extending the territory of analysis beyond the figure in question and imaging the spatial intentions when discussing the consequences of multiplicity, social disconnect, and recovery outside the normal perceptions created by a variety of obstacles.
