Content Authenticity

Exploring some research questions like how to give credits when the art is made by an AI. How can we assign roles in collaboration?

DNA Information Storage

The future of information storage, origination, dissemination, and mutation in decentralized DNAs.

This is a speculative project and was done while thinking about how information and resources utilized to store information are marginalized. After going through multiple iterations and explorations on content, content retrace-ability, credits in AI generated work, permissions in AI generated work, blockchains, and meta in work, I decided on the topic of information storage. This speculative project is grounded in research. DNA is the smallest unit of information storage and is abundantly available.

Study 1: Making this technology accessible and tangible for people. Defining how interactions can happen and information can be shared and received.

Study 2 in bringing people closer. What if through DNA chemical synthesis we could share smell with each other?

Study 3: Hacking and natural processes of DNA. Click on the image to open youtube video.

Study 4: A very small study with a lot left explored due to time constraints.
