DNA frameshift mutations, visualized. 

This series of screenprints abstracted the image of two strands of DNA and the process of reading information stored in the genetic code.  By mingling the colors of each three base boxes in their frames, a sort of emergent language develops in which the base colors and their combination produce a unique  visual 'word'.  The first and second sets are exactly the same, except for a single addition of a base, a mutation that fundamentally shifts the reading frame of the sequence and its visual expression.
