DNA Art: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

We talked about dna11, a company that creates personalized and original abstract art from a sample of your DNA or fingerprints, in the past when talking about geek art, but never pondered the chic factor of the pieces.

Apartment Therapy likes the pieces because they are unique to each person, but I like them because they have a sort of science-inspired flare without being overly geeky or unattractive.

They range in price from about $190 to $790. Do you think they're chic enough that you would have one made with your DNA?

It looks alright but I wouldn't waste that much money on it. Anybody could find a piece of paper and shine lights behind it.

Heh, seeing this reminds me of how many protein gels I used to make. It's a cool process and I'm dying to get one!

Hee hee. Used to make these in the lab! The side lanes are markers--the center lanes are the person's DNA. I use lab materials to make art so I like the concept behind these.

my boyfriend got me one as a birthday surprise. I don't think the pictures do them justice, it's the main piece in my bedroom and is really quite lovely. Want to get a pair of the fingerprints for my livingroom, too!

They are cool, but you have to have a good room to put it in.

The picture is okay. I like the finger print ones better than the dna
