Art equals science. For Peter Gray, science is art. “Point Mutation” explores the unique genetic markers that are used to determine our ancient ancestors by the National Geographic Society’s Genographic Migration Project. The painted single strand of DNA is punctuated by a single, stainless steel mutation. These mutations are what allow geneticists to trace our common evolutionary time line back through the ages, as different populations carry these distinct markers.

Peter Gray shares his multidisciplinary artistic and biomedical experiences in his art and with his students. He teaches sculpture and genetics to 6th and 7th grade students. Born on the East Coast, he has long made Chicago his home. His work has been exhibited throughout the U.S.
