Dr. Piloto’s incorporation of DNA into each artwork offer supporters, art enthusiasts and collectors a personal connection with the artist, but also provides a highly secure means of authenticating the artwork. Each art piece is one of a kind and Artem Scientia preserves this uniqueness by incorporating a means of authentication into each piece. We embed unique DNA fragments from Dr. Piloto’s genome, of undisclosed sequences, into the paint used by him to sign each piece. The resulting proprietary DNA profile, called ArtSci Signature, is specific to Dr. Piloto and offers a means of verifying the authenticity of a given art piece. For added security, paint used by Dr. Piloto is stored in a vault at a secure location to prevent forgeries. Protocols used to create, embed and authenticate an ArtSci Signature are held as a trade secret by Artem Scientia.
Artem Scientia is committed to maintaining the privacy of our patrons commissioning artworks or donating their biological sample for the creation of future art pieces. Artem Scientia does not and will not sequence, edit or share any donor’s sample or NuTec profiles with third parties. All samples are immediately destroyed after they are incorporated into art pieces.
