LAUREL NAKADATE, BFA 98
31 h x 46 w
DESCRIPTION: type-C print
SERIES DESCRIPTION: Part of the Strangers and Relations Series in which the artist chose her subjects via genetic research. Using her genetic code as a source material and the Internet DNA testing site 23andme, Nakadate was able to identify distant living relatives. They were invited to meet her in a rural location, wearing and bringing with them whatever items they wished. The results are haunting images of distinct individuals, spotlighted against a dark, almost dreamlike landscape. The series pushes the notion of social networking into the realm of the scientific by exploring genetically-based patterns of connection and community, while also presenting images of varied and intriguing subjects.
