In Stranger Visions, she gathered hairs, cigarette butts and chewed up gum from the public bathrooms, streets as well as waiting rooms in various parts of New York City.

Working with these traces strangers innocently left behind, her project was intended to get interested to the rising forensic DNA phenotyping technology, the possibility for a custom of biological observation, and the desire to genetic determinism.
Heather Dewey-Hagborg trawled the various places in New York City searching for something porting DNA for use with the 3d Printed Portraits.
The resulting masterpiece is astounding as this American artist utilised the DNA which she has gathered to check as well as get insights into the culture or ethnicity, gender as well as eye colour of every stranger. And from this, she utilised face generating program to develop a notion of what this unfamiliar person would look like.
Instead of keeping the face of the stranger on her computer, she brought them to life. She did this by utilising a 3-dimensional printer to make full-scale full-colour portraits.
