OPENING FEB. 12:"Stranger Visions,"by Heather Dewey-Hagborg is on exhibit at the McGlothlin Center for the Arts, Emory, Va. She collected hairs, chewed up gum and cigarette butts from the public bathrooms and waiting rooms of New York City. She extracted DNA from them and analyzed it to computationally generate 3-D printed life size full-color portraits representing what those individuals might look like, based on genomic research. The project was meant to call attention to the developing technology of forensic DNA phenotyping, the potential for a culture of biological surveillance, and the impulse towards genetic determinism. In her lecture, Feb. 12 at 7:30 p.m., she discusses her project and other developments in research since the original project. 276-944-6333,
