Quilting DNA

With a theme of "identity", I'm guessing there will be at least one quilt that refers to DNA in some way. Here are some other textile works with a focus on cells and DNA:
  • Gene Pool by Kay Haerland;
  • Spirogyra #1 by Caryl Bryer Fallert; and
  • Genome Quilts by Beverly St. Clair has developed a way of encoding genetic information in quilt designs.
While looking at the Bryerpatch site, I also found Blueprints by Marcia Karlin who writes "The title of this piece was taken from my poem, which describes the process of making cyanotype prints as a metaphor for memory and the evolution of meaning and identity".

Very cool links. I considered fingerprints for a bit, but it's been done before.
