If we were to define and encode something as fleeting, yet permament, as the phenomenon of a dead tree, what would it look like? How would we perceive the DNA of it? How to express our impermanent perceptions of ever-evolving principles? The forms and compositions of the phenomenon?
The information gathered dictates the way the DNA of Things will be transmitted and received. What is at stake is that our choices influence the weight and importance of the discourse in question.
We estimate that exposed to moisture, heat >40°C and UV light, the half-life of the DNA of Things sculpture, with standard shell thickness of 32 mm, is approximately 51.2 years.
The DNA of Things, and the information enclosed within, is not a single message, or a directive, but part of a Dialogue – meant to continue and blossom into a discourse.
When a tree dies, its lifecycle continues, literally opening up and evolving into a biodiverse microhabitat with a purpose of returning nutrients to the planet. Based on that same premise, our object decays and opens up at the end of its lifecycle, evolving with the purpose of returning the data ‘’nutrition’’ for the information cycle of the anthropocene.
