Image: edited AFM image of "Holy Ship"; DNA nanosculpture suspended in Holy Water
A DNA nanosculpture of a ship was produced, purified, documented and dispersed in Holy Water (blessed in the Vatican by Pope Francis). The resulting water was then placed inside a glass vessel and sealed, unable to be opened and analysed. While documentation of the "Holy Ship" is placed around the gallery, the viewer can never truly know whether the boat is inside the vessel. They must rely on faith.
