Review (Leonardo Reviews, January 2004)

"The slim, elegant volume The Eighth Day provides an illustrated introduction to Eduardo Kac's work, and lists URLs of online essays by Kac and others for further study."

Review (Neural, March 2005)

"The possibility to 'write' informations in living beings is one of the characteristics of transgenic art, an art form which Eduardo Kac helped create. Discussing our biological identity implies a profound cultural transformation, symbol of the beginning of this new millennium where the strategical importance of the tactical use of biomedia becomes clearer and clearer."
