Description:


    Ecce Homology, a physically interactive new-media work, visualizes genetic data as calligraphic forms. A novel computervision based user interface allows multiple participants, through their movement in the installation space, to select genes from the human genome for visualizing the Basic Local Alignment Search Tool (BLAST), a primary algorithm in comparative genomics.
