Floodwater (bio)graphy: The last 473 pages of the base pair sequence of the X chromosome animated with an algorithm that creates turbulence. The piece was made in response to Hurricane Katrina, which displaced part of my family. They were a few of the many people who were deciding if they should return to the area. If they did not it would mean that my family and genetic information would be removed from a specific location and I was aware that the movement of the genetic information of these people would ultimately change the genetics of future generations of my family. Genetic information faces turbulence as the body is pulled and submerged by the flow of floodwater.
