>>> About



A series of online artworks inspired by the human genome sequence and developed from dna profiles which are sequenced from the artists blood. The online artworks are investigations into genetic codes mapped and re assembled online. The artwork series enables a cross reference all the code on the genome sequence allowing you to intermix or breed your own variable of me; you can look at the new mix of chromosomes in real time; on line. To make these works my dna was sampled to make metaphases, g-banding and full profiles of chromosomes. Samples of my dna currently resides in my freezer ready for cloning. Works are enabled by dna code extracted from my blood. The sounds and images of code make audio visual self portrait versions.

A database of dna code. A completely new online experience.

It seems likely with the advent of self dna tests the emergence of this type of DNA testing will be prolific. This data can be recorded into the genomixer database and saved. That is, each independent user will have there own personal online audio visual experience based on there unique genetic code and becuase they have the option to save it this means they can also see and listen to other users results. In other words this is a giant open source audio visual labyrinth and database. The system uses a generative audio system that can play interactive non linear audio over the net. The sounds are mapped to the genetic codes. Genomixer is a complete audio visual online generative system. Code representing code generated by code made from blood.

Open source DNA movement. Expoitation of the masses for the masses.

The genomixer has also applied for public IPO. If any venture capitalists would like to express interest, ie investment please get in touch. The IPO will allow the database of users to be accessed by other company research and all monies derived from exploitatation and investigation of our pooled dna will be shared. Which is opposite the position of the Welcome Trust and its biobank, in that if you donate a sample they will use your dna for profit and sell the information to publically listed drug company.
