‘Genetic Automata’ is an ongoing body of video works by artists Larry Achiampong and David Blandy exploring race and identity in an age of avatars, videogames and DNA ancestry on display at Wellcome Collection. The four films in the series investigate where deeply ingrained ideas about race come from and the role that science has played in shaping these perceptions. Our exhibition graphics covered title typography, a series of repeating wallpapers, film posters, object labels and a gallery guide under a visual language that emphasised categorisation and the digital.
