Taking the concept of identity theft to its logical conclusion, DNA is an interactive, Web-based fiction project set in the year 2075, in a future where genetic clones are commonplace and the unique identity of any individual is protected only by tacit consent. Detailing a year in the life of a clone who begins plotting to take on the identity of one of his "code partners," the project includes a series of hyperlinks to real and fictionalWikipedia entries that provide a peek into the dystopic future of economic, agricultural, cultural, social, and political systems.
