One of our clients Jason Sutton just had his modern home featured in Seattle Metropolitan Magazine.  Jason’s DNA 11 portrait is placed predominantly within the design of the house and serves as a focal point. The house was designed by John DeForest,  a Harvard-trained architect.  The “Zipper House” design is a direct reflection of Jason’s laidback personality combining modern elegance and simplicity.

You know you’re becoming part of ‘pop culture’ when you appear on CSI. The producers of CSI: NY contacted us to ask if we wanted to participate in an episode. At first we were a bit concerned how it was going to be used- but we couldn’t say no- we knew it would be a great opportunity to share our idea with the world. In this episode called “What schemes may come” a suspect’s DNA portrait is used to match her DNA to a crime without the need for getting a warrant.  This of course could never happenin real life.  The images we produce, although generated from our customer’s DNA and completely unique to each individual actually hold no forensically valid data. Also the sequences that we target are not disclosed to anyone outside of our labs.  We take mutiple steps to ensure the privacy of our clients.  So you don’t need to worry if you’re planning on doing any major crimes. 🙂

It was really cool to work with the producers of CSI and to see our art on CSI:NY.  Hopefully we can post a video clip in the next few days.

Yesterday DNA 11 was featured on The Today Show on NBC. The audience was over 4 million viewers. It seems like each week we are getting more and more publicity. Could Oprah be next? Stay tuned….

The best part of this video is when Al Roker says he loves our art.

Last Friday we were invited over to NPRs *New* Manhattan Studio to do a little radio interview. It played on Sunday. Over 3 million listeners. The offices were so new that I was the first person to be interviewed in that particular studio. Construction was actually still going on. As we were leaving we were asked to sign their guest-book- it was really cool. I found Clint Eastwood and Frank Miller’s signature. Frank’s signature is by far the craziest signature I have ever seen. Frank created SIN CITY and was a fellow guest at Semi-Permanent NYC this year. We’re big fans of his work.

Listen to the interview from NPRs web site
