Overview

Using DNA sequencing as an analogy to deconstruct the history of a neighborhood, we crafted a series of cast, fused, mirrored, etched and digitally printed glass “building blocks” to form a visual timeline of the surrounding area.

Goals

The neighborhood narrative tells the story of the locale's history while framing it in a form that speaks to its current incarnation as a biotech hub. Referencing the DNA sequence as an metaphor, imagery from the neighborhood's past create a layered timeline in metal and glass.
