Inner Beauty
Our biological identity as art?
DNA 11 is a company that takes an individual’s DNA and transforms it into a print, which may be the most personal form of art. The minimalist composition of the image is a reflection of our complex cellular composition - our self-portrait.
Founders Adrian Salamunovic and Nazim Ahmed, best friends and innovators, wanted to create the most personalized art possible. Sending in your DNA, which is merely a cheek swab sample, gives you the options of having your DNA transformed into either black and white or coloured ‘portraits’. Lip and finger print ‘portraits’ are also options. Have a significant other? You can send up to four DNA samples to create a series of identity works. 
It may be a business and not an actual artist, but the concept of taking our literal, biological identity, and transforming it into an aesthetic piece, out of context, is pretty cool. Whether as a conversion piece or just out of love for your own being, the DNA 11 images are a creative alternative to the typical self-portrait or family photo.
