Abstract: Modem technologies are now designed to extract and re-author privacy. The re-authoring of identity has become an implicit part of contemporary reality. The next generation of my "Bot" lineage specifically addresses ownership of one's self. Her name is Gene. Gene will have the same capabilities as earlier works such as Ruby and DiNA, but what is unique to Gene is that she will also have the ability to scan and capture users finger prints. Once captured, Gene will store the scans, identify and offer certificates of copyright to them and in return, give Users back copyright to their own identity. Gene, like DiNA will be a "live" installation, connected to the internet.
