Artist Statement:

    DNA Pod consists of a throng of 60 small sculptural works, created out of a process of origami folding and unfolding DNA autoradiographs collected from universities. This method of DNA sequencing is no longer used as it’s been taken over by digital technology. The redundant information slides find new life as art.

    In this iteration of the piece, it is accompanied by a choreographed performance from Xolisile Bongwana and a video documenting the Sardine Run, an annual phenomenon that occurs just off the coast of Durban in which millions of sardines move north along the eastern South African coast.
