Dolly's Genomics


A woven woollen blanket that details the story of Dolly the Sheep, designed to accompany the sample of her fleece in the Wellcome Collection in London. The blanket details the narrative of Dolly using religious imagery, giving context to the sample and highlighting obvious controversies around the subject matter.  A weekly leaflet would sit in the exhibition containing publicly available genome data that individuals have published online, including an updated quotation from a current geneticist. This aims to bring the modern controversy of genetic science to the forefront, underlining the ethical debate surrounding current genomics.
