Cosmetic Genetics speculates the timeline of genetic engineering and imagines what this future will look like.
Part II explores what these predictions might look like as they unfold in the media by creating imagined futures showing both the benefits and side effects of the industries.
Part I analyzes past trends in similar industries in order to make a prediction about how genetic engineering will be advanced, implemented, and ultimately misused. The history of similar technologies show a pattern where the original practice splits to form a secondary superficial pathway; by decoding these trends, predictions can be made for how the industry evolves.
