version 097

The Genomixer series is one of the artworks I made using my DNA which was tested and profiled to make this series of artwork. The Genomixer artworks allow you to cross reference the patterns on the genome sequence and intermix or breed your own variable, allowing you to look at the new mix of chromosomes in real time. The sequences of my dna code are used for the images and sounds as well as generative code algorithms.

They can be exhibited on touch screens with printers connected. The installation creates an immersive space of code and if you press the {P} on the screen it generates a printout genomix and the images go on the gallery wall.

These audio visual online works are non linear DNA portraits. Note Version 092 was made in 2000 and was a prototype without my real data. Version 097 and 0102 use my data from the sequenced DNA sample.The sound sequence is playing along my DNA sequence using the letters ATCGA etc. The letters are converted to a sounds string and generated in the artworks.

All code and dna source material thanks to the higher powers (maybe) and all testing MRC Clinical Sciences Centre Faculty of Medicine, Imperial College.

Thanks to everyone I have been asking for advice on this technical and scientific including Amanda Fisher, Kate Michaelides, Ruth Williams. Particular thanks to Ghislaine Boddington, Andrew Ward, Debbie Lander and the hard working team at future physical.

AVAILABILITY: Custom made software system and computer files. Also available on touch screen.
