Raiding city streets Heather carefully loots cigarette butts, stray hairs and chewed gum that once belonged to strangers. With these delicately collected samples, she dissects, decodes and analyzes the genetic makeup for each of these strangers. With her results, Heather is able to recreate 3D printed models of the stranger’s face. Complete with sample boxes, Heather Dewey-Hagborg’s 3D face print replicas are currently on display at Art Miami!
