Abstract

"Ecce Homology", a physically interactive new-media work, visualizes genetic data as calligraphic forms. A novel computer-vision 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. "Ecce Homology" was successfully installed in the UCLA Fowler Museum, 6 November 2003-4 January 2004.
