Final Major Project:

Exploring factors that influence who we are from the detailing of our genetic code, to the development of our personal identity.

When DNA is analysed using DNA profiling, bands are created, which will be unique to every other person in the world. Therefore to test the paternity of a child for example, the child’s DNA profile would be matched against the mans, and if none of the bands match up the man is not the farther. The biological farther of the child would have a number bands that match up. When applying this concept to textiles, I am going to think in terms of how I could apply a process, such as DNA profiling to textiles. By using the same process, but altering some of the materials or tools used, I could create really exciting effects.
