Returning to the feminist voice, in 2001 Rapoport created Redeeming the Gene, Molding the Golem, Folding the Protein, a mythic parody.
Rapoport challenges current genetic engineering technology by creating an artificial anthropoid, the Golem, according to the ancient Hebraic ritual directions given in the Kabbalah. In the story, Lilith and Eve, maligned sources of female evil for many years reinvented themselves by creating an ethical gene that they used to mold the Golem. The “Kabbalah gene”, displaced the “artist’s gene” that Eduardo Kac invented in his artwork Genesis.
