    Part of a series of interviews undertaken by artist, Lynn Hershman Leeson (playing Gene Ware, a character from the virtual world of Second Life) and actress, Tilda Swinton. In this episode, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, who is credited with having identified "the aging gene" or Telomeres in our DNA, discusses how this information shifts our understanding of who we are as humans, how in fact we are ourselves a genetic remix; and how advances in macro photographic processes have aided that revelation. Commissioned by Tate's Intermedia Art programme, copyright Lynn Hershman Leeson 2008.
