Your DNA is Art

February 22, 2006 7:35 am Published by

There’s a company called DNA11 that makes up big, nice looking, (expensive) pieces of art based on your own genome. I was perusing MetaFilter last week when I came across a question about finding a place that would do the same procedure, cheap, and just give a digital scan or a standard print that could be blown up. I liked the idea.

When I saw that one of the answers was offering to do it, I sent him an email post-haste. A few days later, he sends me (and several other Mefites) how to participate, along with a layman’s introduction to polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis.

The Gates in the park

Christo’s newest “masterpiece” has started being assembled in Central Park. (The first photo in that article strikes me as Goldsworthy-esque, yet artificial.) Chris, we’re depending on you to get us some better photos.

Update 1-5: Oh, I get it. The first picture isn’t the artwork, it’s just piles of metal platforms the over-the-top arches are going to be resting on top of, so that it doesn’t damage the ground.

Gnome icon creation, high speed

Check out this video of the guy who created most of the Gnome icons creating a new one. The high-speed version is great and only a minute long.

Somehow, his style (at least the style of this icon) reminds of Chris’ drawing.
