Trends: When it comes to art, you can’t get more original than this

dnaIf having a photographer take your portrait isn’t intimate and personal enough, you might want to hand over your DNA to someone who can create a completely original piece of art for your home. A company called DNA 11, with the slogan “From life comes art,” takes DNA and fingerprint samples and turns them into colorful works of abstract art. Essentially, your chromosomes become cubes and your fingerprints become swirling labyrinths.

The company allows you to select the color and size of your art. Then it sends a kit for collecting your own DNA samples. The samples are sent back to a lab, digitally enhanced and printed.

This sounds really cool, in an X-Files sort of way. I just hope Big Brother and/or a mad scientist who wants to clone art lovers isn’t behind this.
