Having your DNA analyzed is now as easy as spitting into a tube, and companies compete to offer genetic revelations about your ancestry and risk of disease. Are there downsides to allowing such easy access to our genetic information? Can our DNA also be translated into new to ways to connect? Transmedia artist Heather Dewey-Hagborg’s work probes what we can and can’t learn from our DNA, and she balances an optimistic perspective on biotechnology with an honest exploration of its ethical implications.
