My broad goal in this residency was to ‘denature’ DNA by asking:
How does DNA exceed the spatial, material, temporal and ethical bounds we place around it in our habitual understandings?
How does DNA go rogue?
When is DNA ‘out-of-place’?
Here are some of the ways I encountered in my research, by no means an exhaustive list. I’ve written about them on separate pages:
Exhaled breath DNA
Environmental DNA (eDNA)
DNA as data storage
DNA as Memorial: Water cremation
