I am still very much in the middle of my wetlab work for Stranger Visions but the software side – the part that takes DNA information and produces a 3d model of a face – is mostly complete. I thought I would talk a little bit about the software and the concept of inductive bias in this next installment on Stranger Visions. This is a slightly technical post but there is a kind of ethical question at the end…
Thanks to everyone who made it out to Eyebeam Open Studios! For those who didn’t, here are some pictures of my installation at the event. ALSO Stranger Visions is now up in a snazzy presentation in the Eyebeam bookstore/lobby til August, check it out if you are in Chelsea. (and consider donating to Eyebeam’s kickstarter campaign if you like their work!)

As many of you probably already know I have been working hard over the past 6 months on a new project Stranger Visions. I am working on the piece as a resident at Eyebeam and in collaboration with the DIY bio lab, Genspace in downtown Brooklyn. I recently gave a LISA talk describing this piece and I thought I would elaborate on some of the details from my presentation through a series of blog posts. In this post I will describe where the idea behind Stranger Visions came from and how I am producing it in general terms. Future posts will delve into more details about lab work, 3d programming, 3d printing and ethics.
