Massive Attack veröffentlichen die DNA von „Mezzanine“ in einer Spraydose

Ich weiß ehrlich gesagt nicht ganz genau, was wie ich mir das vorstellen kann, aber Massive Attack veröffentlichen die DNA von „Mezzanine“ in einer Spraydose.

“This digital bitstream of the album (0s and 1s) was first translated to 901’065 DNA sequences (A, C, T and Gs), each 105 characters long, and closely following our publication (Grass et al. Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2015, link: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/anie.201411378). The 901’065 individual sequences were then chemically synthesised resulting in a synthetic DNA sample, which fully represents the digital bitstream of the album. To enable the mixing of the DNA with the spray can paint and to guarantee information stability, the DNA sequences were encapsulated in synthetic glass fossils (see: http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20130329-tiny-glass-bottles-protect-dna) and then directly added to the spray can. We ensured that every spray can contains at least 0.1 micrograms of the synthetic DNA, which is equivalent to 1 million copies of the album. This is only possible due to the immense data capacity of DNA (about 100 exabytes per gram)”

Klar soweit, oder?

Massive Attack’s 3D, also known as a graffiti artist, said:

“It’s an interesting way to vandalise your back catalogue, although DNA-encoded spray paint is unlikely to be adopted by street artists seeking anonymity”
