Exploring DNA

Following on from our studio session exploring stains a couple of weeks ago, Gillian & I have started work on a new research and development project, inspired DNA using found objects as our source material. Each object will be changed, developed and combined with other altered objects to create a sequence of interactions and combinations.

 

We are working on a funding application to take this much further but for now we are experimenting with visual representations of DNA through generations. The creative part is fantastic but I realise my knowledge of DNA and biochemistry is a bit sparse! I have a lot to learn and lots of ideas to explore, which is very exciting.

  1. great idea – but since the study traditionally starts with Gregor Mendel and his peas, you need to include peas, or pea plants, or leaves – love the whole idea of portraying DNA in art, you wil go far with this one!

Let me know what you think
