Noses, images, realities - much can be tweaked. Why is something enhanced, when is something updated, how is something improved? These questions not only affect the devices & Apps around us. They express a continuous state of flux which is integral to organisms: The ability of organisms to change in response to the environment shows their adaptability. The ability of organisms to change in response to the environment is called phenotypic plasticity. Phenotypic plasticity is a way in which organisms cope with variation. It encompasses all types of changes that may or may not be permanent throughout an individual’s lifespan. Generally, phenotypic plasticity is more important for immobile organisms than mobile organisms.

OPTIMIZED TEXTURES is a group show which pieces together different approaches of altering some things. Which came first - the organism or the change?
