This is an ongoing project to create fireworks based on human DNA information.
Based on the genetic information of James Watson (1928-), one of the researchers who discovered the double helix structure of DNA and the first person in the world to disclose his own genetic information, some of his genetic characteristics were mapped to the types and colors of fireworks, which were then developed into an installation of simulated images, sounds, and photographs.
The installation was developed as an installation of simulated images, sounds, and photographs.
In addition to the genetic information, "environmental factors" that are important in shaping a person's character and life were also taken into consideration and reflected.
In the future, this project will be further developed with the goal of making it possible for anyone to display fireworks as a representation of themselves or someone they love.
Fireworks generated from James Watson's DNA
James Watson's haplotype values are subjected to an algorithm to determine the color pattern
