Fingerprint art

For a unique work of art there is no need to look any further than your own fingerprint. This is exactly what the Canadian art gallery DNA 11 realized. This gallery operates under the slogan: ‘From Life Comes Art’. Their newest product is a piece of real ‘art of life’: fingerprint paintings. Here you can have a work of art made from your own fingerprint. First you will be sent a starters kit on which you can leave your fingerprint. Then you send back the whole lot, pick your favorite colours and size, and there it is! Go to http://www.dna11.com/gallery_finger_prints.as for more information.

(Thanks to Anne van Doorn for the suggestion.)

British biometric database shut down

Good news from our neighbours on the other side of the North Sea: today the British decision to scrap ID cards as well as a national biometric database has officially come into force. This came about with one stroke of the pen by Queen Elizabeth. The responsible Home Office Minister Damian Green gave the following clarification: ‘‘The Identity Card Scheme represented the worst of government. It was intrusive, bullying, ineffective and expensive.’’ We hope the British have set a good example. When will the Netherlands follow suit?

Update: more about this news report in WebwereldNRC's 'Recht en Bestuur' and NRC Next (in Dutch).
