Juxtapoz // Monday, May 06, 2013
Information artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg has been taking DNA left behind on spit out gum, hairs, and other pieces of our genetic trail that we leave behind every day and generating and printing faces using a 3D printer. The resulting portraits of anonymous people may not be a 100% accurate since there are many things that are impossible to determine from DNA (age, etc.), the artists says they probably have a "family resemblance." The series is titled Stranger Visions.
