note = "Commission from Wellcome Trust, London (£10,000) as part of the fourplus:Writing DNA exhibition curated by Denna Jones. There were 7 co exhibitors included Richard Dedomenici, Ruth MacLennan & Penny McCarthy who exhibited throughout Wellcome Trust headquarters. Site specific image/text work exploring the relation between Maurice Wilkins life in science and the social context of the discovery of DNA. Biographical material was interleaved with newspaper clippings in order to explore how a biography relates to and responds to socio-historic conditions. Installed in the Biographical Reading Room, WellcomeTrust Library, London. Exhibition accompanied by a limited edition bookwork, in the form of a flickbook which paralleled the transposition of 2D x-ray crystallography into a 3D structure. Elements of the installation were expanded into: 'Designer bodies', an exhibition and symposium: Exhibition at Stills Gallery, Edinburgh, 3rd April – 6th June 2004; symposium at Scottish national Gallery of Modern Art, 3rd April 2004 (http://www.designerbodies.org/Dunlop.html) An exploration of sense of self in the age of genetic manipulation. The installation comprised a desk with opposing video screens. One carried ‘optimistic’ pro-science propaganda from archive sources, the other more reflective black and white sequences. 3 co-exhibitors: Jackie Donachie, Christine Borland and Gina Czarnecki ‘Today in Paradise’: Genetics and Art Symposium at Vålands University Gothenburg 23rd March 2005 (http://www.podcastdirectory.com/podshows/479777) Participants included Oron Catts, Joe Davis of MIT, Shiho Fukuhara/George Tremmel Rødasten Gothenburg 25th March- 17th April 2005, 26 participants including N55, Laura Cinti/Howard Boland (http://www.mobileart.se/mobeng/tpga.html) coverage.spatial: Symposium ‘Today in Paradise’: Genetics and Art Symposium at Vålands University Gothenburg 23rd March - 17th April 2005 Exhibition 'Designer bodies', an exhibition and symposium: at Stills Gallery, Edinburgh, 3rd April – 6th June 2004.

N2 - The 'Century 21 Calling' multiple takes material from a lost travelogue for the Seattle World’s Fair. Re-positioning it from film into the form of a flipbook, it conceptually revisits the necessary leap into three-dimensionality which enabled the DNA structure to be deciphered. This leap from the flat screen into a spatial dimension mirrors the leap of scientific imagination necessary to decipher DNA structure, the area which Maurice Wilkins was responsible for developing.
