Creepy or Cool? Portraits Derived From DNA

5 posts in this topic

It started with hair. Donning a pair of rubber gloves, Heather Dewey-Hagborg collected hairs from a public bathroom at Penn Station and placed them in plastic baggies for safe keeping. Then, her search expanded to include other types of forensic evidence. As the artist traverses her usual routes through New York City from her home in Brooklyn, down sidewalks onto city buses and subway cars—even into art museums—she gathers fingernails, cigarette butts and wads of discarded chewing gum.

I don't know if this could be used in forensics or whether DNA portraits would be accepted in the courts.It is pretty cool and amazing and even compelling.
