Roland Piquepaille's Technology Trends
How new technologies are modifying our way of life

dimanche 16 mai 2004

The U.K. supermarket chain Somerfield decided last year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the discovery of DNA in an original way. It commissioned British artist Abigail Fallis to create a sculpture of a DNA double helix made of shopping carts and to display it during the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign of 2004. The sculpture, named DNA DL90, is 31 feet high and weighs more than three tons. It is on display since April 2004 at "Sculpture at Goodwood," the 21st century British sculpture park in Surrey.

All the pictures come from "Sculpture at Goodwood" or Abigail Fallis.
