Hosted by Heather Dewey-Hagborg, in collaboration with Machine Project

The participants in this workshop will be taken through the creative stages behind the artist’s Stranger Visions project, which consists of a series of sculpture-portraits made following the analysis of genetic material collected in public spaces. The work, which draws on methods used in science and the field of information gathering, seeks to highlight current social issues such as DNA data banking. Participants will generate miniature portraits based on their own interpretation and analyses of genetic data we find together online.

No prior technical experience is necessary. A laptop required is required.

This workshop also occurs on Saturday, December 10.
