a visualization of genetic data as calligraphic forms. 5 projectors present Ecce Homology’s calligraphic forms across a 40-foot wide wall. a custom-built computer vision based user interface allows multiple participants, through their movement in the installation space, to select genes from the human genome for visualizing the Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST), a primary algorithm in comparative genomics. it is inspired by the parallels between the way in which protein structure specified by DNA reflects its function in an organism & the manner in which form & visual structure in pictographic languages is directly connected to their meaning.
