Toxicity test is an increasingly disrupted crochet sequence.

Starting with a basic pattern for a string bag, each sucessive round of the Grand Mutator adds a level of deviation from the starting patten. This progressive mutation relates to Darwinian evolution where forms are considered to change due to mistakes in coding over time.

Another reference for this work are the toxicity tests performed on spiders in the 1960's to determine the levels of toxicity of recreational drugs. (above)
