DNA Datascapes
Bill Ralph
Associate Professor, Interactive Arts & Sciences, Brock University

"This work was commissioned by John Bonnet as part of his outdoor Datascapes virtual reality project that was shown at Brock University in May of 2014. I was given a short sequence of numbers he had extracted from DNA sequences and asked to make a video that used these numbers in an essential way. The problem was how to create visual interest from the small amount of data I was given. The remedy was to use the relationships between consecutive strings of the numerical sequence to produce the video you see here.
