STRANGER VISIONS - Heather Dewey-Hagborg (US)


https://dublin.sciencegallery.com/growyourown/strangervisions

Stranger Visions is a series of portraits strained from discarded cigarette butt DNA found on Dublin, Ireland streets.

A custom computer program distills traits and creates a 3-D print.

The idea started from artist, Heather Dewey-Hagborg's thoughts about a single strand of hair, and how study of  its genetic traits may lead to discovering the owner's identity.

May I say...creepy!?

I am absolutely intrigued by the color and shape combinations by German designer, André Britz. Not only do the changed fruit colors play with our perceptions, but their juxtaposition within the colored background suggest a sophisticated sense of design, and create a visually interesting portrait.
