Cellout.me (2015)

What is the value of someone’s DNA? Can this sensitive private data simply be sold and is it possible to become the co-owner of someone else’s DNA data? What are the ethical, financial and social consequences if this unique private data is traded, ends up on the internet and is available to businesses and other organisations?

For Cellout.me I will sell my complete DNA data (full genome) online to the highest bider.
My DNA will be publicly auctioned via the www.cellout.me website. The purchaser of this artwork will, become the owner of my ultimate self-portrait.

I will present Cellout.me during the third edition of Art at the Schinkel, an art manifestation in Amsterdam starting the 27th of september 2015.
