From DNA to NSA

From DNA to NSA
an intervention by Gisle Frøysland, Maite Cajaraville

DNA to NSA action intervention consists on setting up a DIY laboratory to extract DNA strings from the visitors. Using common, domestic products, audience can follow an easy DIY process and experiences how their DNA strings looks like. The DIY lab serves as a proof of concept of how easy your privacy can be broken.

Visitors, once they finalize the 5 steps can choose to blend their genetic material with the others visitors forming a new common DNA. A blender is set up at the exhibition space.

As part of the piece, 5 raspberry pi are streaming public DNA records from an internet database and the data is sonified and visualized in different monitors.
