Family Genes

'Family Genes' by Eleanor Gates-Stuart

‘Family Genes’ by Artist, Eleanor Gates-Stuart

Revisiting artworks ‘Virus’ … actually these ones were never really completed rather a state of mind – thoughts expressed as video installations. The theme lead to other things such as my focus on Science+Art and the opportunity to research bioinformatics and genetic variation through other works such as ‘StellrScope’ and ‘FingerCodes’.  

Amazing to see my family’s involvement in my work, how they have been a part of my work (always) and with tremendous respect to them.
