Genetic Art: DNA Artwork Self Portraits

DNA art sample_04
Self Portraits: Science style | DNA Artistry
DNA-Artistry™ gives new meaning to the term "original art." It's a self-portrait that's as individual - and unique - as you are. DNA-Artistry™ uses the science of your individual DNA sequence to create art in the form of your very own genetic blueprint. One that is beautifully - and colorfully - expressed on canvas or in print.

It all starts with a profile: yours.


So you're thinking of having a portrait made, but you looked in the mirror and realized that finding someone to paint you will be tough. Finding someone to make you look good in a painting, even tougher. So, forget about the mugshot made of canvas and acrylic - just send in a swab of your spit, and Voila! A beautiful image of your DNA from a Gel Electrophoresis. I've done one or two of these in my lifetime...and to be quite honest I would have never considered them art. Then again mine were in black and white. These look like they inverted the gel lanes from black to white and changed the color of the background from white to whatever color you would like. Not that I want to pick it apart, but dammit, why didn't I think of this back in 1996 when I had cell biology lab? There are always unexplored niche markets.

And here is what it looks like when it's executed properly! Makes DNA artistry look like a garage sale :-)
