The Power of DNA


Long Fast Company story by John Pavlus short:


"Photographer Ulric Collette… took portraits of two people who are directly related — say, a father and a daughter or pair of twins — and placed them in a split-screen combination. This basic juxtaposition dramatically visualizes the power that genes — just tiny coiled bits of nucleic acids--exert over the design of an entire organism."


"Some of the resemblances between parents and offspring are so striking that the photos look like they have leaped into the future (or past) of one person's life. But the differences are even more intriguing: It's like seeing jump cuts in genetic code come to life."


Exemplars above and below.

What is it?


Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: larger than a bread box.

Another: blankets in background have nothing to do with anything.

Catme13/GlassEffect16 — A drive to the UPS store through Google Glass

I got in my car Friday morning and drove to the UPS store to return my original Glass (which stopped working last Monday night — day #18 — following which a call Tuesday morning to Google resulted in an overnight shipment of a new replacement unit which arrived 48 hours later, on Thursday morning), filming the trip through the new one. Allez!
