In South Africa, thousands of criminals escape conviction due to people disturbing crime scene evidence. The DNA Project set out to educate the public to never interfere with a crime scene. We created a 6x8m canvas out of varying grades of sand for each stencil layer which were spray painted to resemble a mugshot and placed in the highest traffic area of Cape Town Station. As people unwittingly walked across the installation, the criminal's identity became increasingly unrecognisable
The idea got the public involved in demonstrating how disturbing a crime scene can prevent criminals from being identified.
