From DNA to Eternity: Electronic Art for Your Pad

Tech-infused pieces of art aren't something new, but they are becoming more and more prevalent, which means that it's possible to have some electronic art on your walls. Electronic art used to be the domain of museums of modern art, but they've started trickling down into more affordable formats. A bit of elegant tech art will set your place apart from the rest. From Eternity clocks to DNA art, these pieces can also be unique and tailored to you.

Eternity is a wall-mounted sculpture that was created by the artists Alicia Eggert and Mike Flemming. It basically consists of 30 electric clocks mounted on a large sheet of white acrylic. The hour and minute hands of the clocks will spell out the word 'eternity' once every 12 hours. Sadly, this only lasts a few moments, but we're sure that if these clocks were controlled via an Arduino, this could be programmed in so that 'eternity' would be displayed at the touch of a button. However, this negates the 'eternity' aspect of this piece of art.

We've mentioned DNA portraits before, but if QR DNA codes aren't your cup of tea, then check out these classic DNA portraits from DNA 11. You'll need to send in your own DNA so that your piece of art can be created. The process can take 4 to 6 weeks and you can add the samples of up to 4 different people in your family to make a DNA family portrait.

You get to choose the style, color, size and frame of your DNA portrait, ensuring that it's distinctive. These portraits start at $225 and go up. They come in 25 different color combinations.
