The code of life, DNA, has often been used extensively as data structure for making art, often in the form of re-mapping the stream of code into something audio or visual. Stanza, creator of a series of playful genetic art-objects and virtual musical instruments says that Genomixer is:
‘A series of online artworks inspired by the human genome sequence and developed from DNA profile which are sequenced from my blood. The online artworks are investigations into genetic codes mapped and re assembled online. The series enables a cross reference all the code on the genome sequence allowing you to intermix or breed your own variable; you can look at the new mix of chromosomes in real time; on line. You can also keep and print this pattern from the website.
