is a memegenic guerrilla group. Its main aim is to use new media to develop a vision of life as a fight between memes and genes. This is expressed in a multidisciplinary manner (by means of low-tech, music, video.). By memegenic we mean a new philosophy to analyse life according to the polarity meme/gene. Genes control our bodies and obligue us to make more genes, and memes control our brains to make copies of themselves.
For us, art is one of the ways, a non-conceptual one, to express life as a fight between memes and genes. We consider it the more expressive way to do it.
