MUSEUM ADAMAGA

In 2014 "Adamaga museum-was founded in order to explore the human sensory: The question "Where to?", has been on Margolin's mind for years. The permanent museum exhibition Gene Touch arouses the dilemma that came up, due to science is attempting to penetrate one of the best kept secrets of this universe - DNA and the creation of life. This exhibition calls on every one of us to consider the moral implications of genetic engineering, cloning, and genetic duplication. What is next?
The photographs, video installations, and interactive sculptures examine the reactions to the tactile sensations of encountering textures and electromagnetic fields. The works deal with imaging vs realities when the former complement our limited sensory organs, and the gap between the natural power of absorption and perception made possible by the technological radar.
The works pose several key questions: Can technologically-enhanced virtual tactile encounters expand the experience of human touch? Can technology express or invent an alternative for the touch of a hand, eye contact, and direct human encounters?

GeneoTouch Exhibition
What is the future of mankind? Will we still go from ashes to ashes and dust to dust, or will we emerge from petri dishes and go there in the end? This exhibition looks at questions that came up because science is attempting to penetrate one of the best kept secrets of this universe - DNA and the creation of life. This exhibition calls on every one of us to consider the moral implications of genetic engineering, cloning, and genetic duplication. What is next?
The impacts of technology on humans, our bodies and environments interested me already when I was a young painter and collage artist. When I painted humans, electric wires and printed circuits represented their veins, and my early works warned against environmental hazards that technology creates.
In recent years, I am mostly fascinated by the way technology intervenes in the very process of human existence.
This series of interactive statues was created as I sought ways to conduct a dialogue with viewers along the line between biology and technology. Technology serves as an extension of our bodies and enhances our sensory abilities in the time dimension.
Since touch creates the initial interaction between humans and their environment, I intend to interpret and expand on the awareness of the various types of touch - emotional, spiritual, and cognitive - through art.
