DNA time: a poetry experiment

IMG_5568 Over the last eighteen months I have been conducting a poetry experiment with Pietro Roversi, fellow poet, structural biologist and dear friend, in order to explore the complexities of DNA structures. We wanted to investigate DNA from biological, universal and personal perspectives and try to use the structural constraints of DNA to write poetry. This experiment was a huge but exciting challenge. Our collaborative poem, DNA Time, and an accompanying article about its genesis, writing and form have just been published in the summer 2018 issue of Writing in Education.
