Alchemy is an interactive illuminated manuscript, inspired by medieval books such as Les Tres Riches Heures de Duc De Berry. The theme of the book is the alchemical practice of creating homonculi, small human like creatures, in test tubes. The work is metaphorically addressing issues arising from contemporary technologies such as Genetics and Artificial Intelligence, casting these practices as not dissimilar to previous medieval experiments.
