Visualising binary information encoded into DNA
A printer records the live movements of the colours by printing it’s the genomic translation from binary data to As Cs Gs and Ts. Afterwards, a pump moves the ‘synthetic DNA’ created from the previous data into a speculative DNA_USB microfluidic chip. A visual interface visualises this sequences of actions through an LCD touchscreen. As the printer reads and translates the animations in real-time, the installation thus becomes a mechanism for the machine to read and write onto itself, a metaphor for the cloning of DNA, replicating the stages of a polymerase chain reaction.
