The current paradigm shift in biology gives a cause for reconsidering technical capabilities from a cultural perspective. Human intervention in life and the production of synthetic life-forms was reenacted with digital footage. How does the engineering perspective influence organisms? Digital photography was treated with non-image processing software, a ”What I cannot understand I shall not build”, the creator and date of creation were inserted into the source code of the image. Through this process, only artifacts of the original image remained, creating a microcosm of false interpretation by the image processing software.
