A collaboration with Einstein's Garden and the genetics department at Cardiff University. The Library of Imagined Genes is a place to playfully explore the scientists' research into genetic sequencing and personality traits. Visitors to The Library are asked to separate the ink from the stories of their favourite character from literature. The resulting different colours reveal different predispositions in their 'inknome', which is then added to the biobank. I designed and made the set installation, activity and costumes for the project.

This project was first commissioned and presented as a work in progress by Einstein's Garden at Green Man Festival 2016 with support from The Wellcome Trust
