Infected – an Influenza H1N1 Blanket Woven by Philip Stearns aka GlitchKnit
This is what the flu looks like when its DNA sequence is rendered as a pixel mosaic:
Infected blankets are custom designed by Phillip Stearns and made using raw DNA data from an organism’s complete genome sequence. In the past year, Stearns has updated his collection to include SARS-CoV-2 offerings, and a portion of proceeds from sales go to National Domestic Violence Hotline. Below is an example called, SARS-CoV-2 RdRP Warped 18 Scarf.
