The Gene Project
Max-Delbrück-Centrum für Molekulare Medizin | Sumeet Rohilla
An artistic celebration of the four letters, which are the building blocks of all life.
The Gene Project is the part of an ongoing generative visual research and exploration of the gene sequences. The intention is to celebrate and widen awareness about ubiquitous complex biological systems arising out of the simple set of instructions called the genetic code. After all, on a meta level, life is anything but information propagation from generation to the next; and these snippets of genetic code are the perpetual carriers of information through the passage of time.
The Gene Project is an abstract visual artwork, which attempts to be a multi-faceted endeavour hoping to engage and ignite interest of a broader audience, one that integrates the art and scientific as well as medical community and re-raises the question: Does scientific art hold the potential to inspire a new breed of scientist(s)?

Sumeet Rohilla (Dr. rer. medic.) is an interdisciplinary media artist and creative coder with an academic background in mathematical physics and applied optical sciences. Deriving inspiration from mathematical abstractness and simplicity in nature as well as his diverse cultural background, he intertwines together his passion for science, emerging technologies and art. Through his creative work, he strives towards abstracting away the layers of reality through computational expressionism and ardent practice of design aesthetics. His artwork ranges from abstract data visualizations, real-time interactive light installations to audio-reactive visual experiences.
