“You are the parasite, enjoy!”
An ecosystem is defined by the network of interactions among organisms, and between organisms and their environment. Humans are part of an ecosystem, and its environment is the Earth. However, we are overexploiting it more than we are interacting with it, and therefore desertification, global warming, pollution, animal extinctions…
Trough a experimental process, the user is invited to help a colony of parasites surviving on a host. Different strategies are available, which will influence directly or indirectly its reproductive success, in both short or long term.
The parasite, as any other living thing, aims to reproduce as much as possible, and therefore, exploiting its environment as much as possible. This does not mean that the further exploitation of the host will help to achieve reproductive success of the parasite.
