This website has been produced as an archive for Nature's Great Experiment. Specially commissioned texts by Dr. Tom Shakespeare and Professor Terrie Moffitt have complimented and expanded the project - allowing this website to reflect different persepctives from some of the key participants.

Kit Wise wrote a catalog essay for the exhibition Tape 1 Tape 2 which was commissioned by Monash University, School of Art and design, Melbourne, Australia.

Rachel Withers wrote a text for this website. after she chaired a post-screening conversation between Professor Terrie Moffitt, Dr. Tom Shakespeare and Jordan Baseman at the Wellcome Forum in Spring 2007.

As part of the 2010 tour of Nature's Great Experiment, the speakers who participated at each screening event were invited to write texts for this website. Peter Bonnell, Laura Simpson, Dr. Pam Hirsch, and Susan MacWilliam all responded enthusiastically to this invitation.

Their texts can be found here:

Peter Bonnell - What's love go to do with it?

Dr. Pam Hirsch - Twins

Laura Simpson - When does a subject become a person, or stop being a person?

Susan MacWilliam - Double Take
