Beverly St. Clair’s Genome Quilt designs took quite a bit of processing for me to fully appreciate their beauty. Inspired at Wesleyan College by Anni Albers’ serigraphs of triangles arranged in a grid--which reminded St. Clair of quilt patterns--and by the Human Genome project, St. Clair created quilts that are visual representations of actual genetic code.
Wow. For quilts that exemplify the specific genetic code representations of which St. Clair speaks, check out genome quilts 1,5, 7, and 10 in the gallery.
