This is the first in a series of technical posts I hope to put together over the coming weeks about the process of creating Stranger Visions. Starting from the lab end I will describe in detail how I create these portraits from DNA.

The first step of course is extracting DNA from a sample, that can be done with a kit readily obtainable from Qiagen, the “DNA Investigator Kit”.

 

Kari Mulholland over at TED made a short behind-the-scenes documentary about Stranger visions, check it out!

 

I am very excited about this event I am participating in on Monday afternoon:

It’s a policy discussion in DC about the bioethical and privacy issues raised by Stranger Visions. If you are in or near DC come by! I will have some work on display, give  a short presentation and then we will have an interactive discussion.

 

First off, a really nice post on the smithsonian blog about my work:

 

WNYC and PRI’s Studio 360 did a great feature on my Stranger Visions project:

I received an anonymous sample of hair, and made a portrait of this person’s DNA – see the results below!
