Meniscus (www.johnt.org/meniscus) is a series of interactive web works that explore ideas relating to subjectivity, scientific belief systems and the body. In this series the ease of personal transformation and improvement promised by the convergence of new media technologies and biological research comes in for some serious lampooning. Personal Eugenics, the third in the series, explores the expectations of living in a cultural tradition that privileges progress above all else. While eugenics was discredited by the 'excesses' of the Nazi holocaust, its thinking continues to be a prominent strand in intellectual thought, manifest perhaps most explicitly in the emerging field of biotechnology.
