Gina Czarnecki and John Hunt

Heirloom grows living portraits of Gina Czarnecki’s two daughters from cells collected from their mouths. The cells grow on delicate glass casts of their faces in a life-support system that provides the best conditions for cell growth outside of the laboratory. Heirloom has been exhibited at Jikji, South Korea, Ars Electronica, and FACT Liverpool.

Combining innovative new methods and cell nurturing cocktails, using equipment readily available, over time the cells reach the thickness of tissue paper. They are then preserved, ‘lifted’ and presented as a personalised three-dimensional extra cellular matrix structure. A scientifically accurate portrait.
