Caspar Berger supplies an elixir of life derived from his own body, available to the patient via an app. By scanning the packaging of this medicine with a smartphone, in augmented reality you see the effects it intends to achieve. In this work, Caspar Berger raises delicate questions relating to the extent to which humanity can be engineered, with the associated ethical, political and economic implications, and to our genetic past and immortal future.
