Keith Robinson’s YouNome was our most recent exhibition this summer.

Your personalised genome in 25 portraits 

YouNome is a unique science-art collaboration designed to engage, educate and inspire the general public about ‘personalised genomics’.

Keith Robinson, a renowned portrait artist, has produced 25 portraits, each representing the 24 human chromosomes (plus mitochondria DNA) by altering his self-image.

Collaborating with Darren Griffin (Professor of Genetics at the University of Kent), Dr Gary Robinson (Kent Innovation and Enterprise) and Robbie Sutton (Professor of Social Psychology, Kent), Keith aimed to facilitate genetic understanding and reference art history, popular culture and effects on the viewer.

The portraits each represent a human chromosome.

Each depict an aspect of genetics e.g., disease, variation, evolution, gene-environment interaction, and reflect a certain artistic style e.g., Van Gogh, Hieronymus Bosch, Cindy Sherman.

A special thank you to the artist Keith Robinson and the organiser Eileen Hartney Institute of Cultural and Creative Industries (iCCi).
