Years ago I wondered about doing something like this and now an artist is actually doing it. Taking gum and cigarrettes and such from public streets and using the DNA from it to get a feel for what the genetic markers say the person should look like.

Now if we can do this maybe using this, plus reported life style and health history we can start to see patterns in epigenetic influences and other outside effects on how we develop.


Live content within small means. Seek elegance rather than luxury, Grace over fashion and wealth over riches.
Listen to clouds and mountains, children and sages. Act bravely, think boldly.
Await occasions, never make haste. Find wonder and awe, by experiencing the everyday.

I was about to post this gem :-) . 

 

Even if the results may not be very accurate, it is amazing. I think it's also a glimpse of the way future art will be, mixing science and creativity (rather than "poo on a canvas" variety).
