STRANGER VISIONS - Heather Dewey-Hagborg (US)

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!?
