This fabric work represents the gene expression for Ta_ChSp_TFL1 (Chinese Spring Wheat). This work explores a combination of my experience at the Agricultural Research Centre with an exploration in understanding Jamie Larsen’s data set. By enlarging and simplifying the 522 character long gene expression I seek to make the data tangible to the viewer by inviting exploration through touch. Each pocket will be stuffed with a set weight of cracked wheat to represent the A,T,G, or C in the sequence.
