> DESCRIPTION
Nela Ochoa is a multi-media artist working simultaneously in the realms of video art, sculpture and performance to explore the genetic codes of human bodies. Ochoa will create a site specific installation which investigates DNA in the body. Ochoa's work uses medical images such as X-rays to explore the complex relationships between DNA and body. She often uses her own DNA printed in latex as a starting point for her sculptural endeavors.
