  • Searching for DNA sculptures in London

    178 views 6 months ago
    This summer, Cancer Research UK (CRUK) commissioned artists to decorate 21 DNA helix sculptures. They're spread throughout London, and we tried to find them all. We skipped two because we were tired and hungry and behind schedule, but still managed to see 19 of the 21 sculptures in one day.

    The sculptures are in London until early September 2015. After that, they will be auctioned off to raise money for the Francis Crick Institute.
