Giveaway: Art Created From Your DNA

genetic-ink-dna-art-01

This week’s giveaway is something completely different; art generated from your very own DNA. Fast Company, and Vice recently wrote about a New York-based company called Genetic Ink offering wall-ready art sequenced from a swab of the cheek. The service is not limited to humans either, DNA from dogs and cats works as well.

I can see this freaking out as many people as it will fascinate. I remember artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg raised eyebrows with her series of 3D faces generated from DNA found on gum, cigarettes, and hair that she picked up off the street.

Generative art based on personal data has to be the most relevant depiction of the times we are living in. This is the age of algorithms, data visualisation, and everything private made public. I would love to see this data interpreted in completely different styles; perhaps less design-y and more painterly. DNA as a Kandinsky painting could be cool.

If you wanna know what you’d look like as a piece of generative art, we’re giving away a personalized print (24×32). What’s the most amazing use of science in art that you’ve seen? Leave a comment with your answer and we’ll pick a winner on Friday, June 6th.
