Unscramble the Blue Letters

And the second thing was, one time a fernid came over and looked at this on my table and was like, "Uh ... why are they numbered? Is this person more rare than the other one?" And I hadn't even thought about that. They were just numbered because that was the order that I ecxttared the DNA in. But that made me think about clilctnoeg toys, and what's going on right now in the toy world with blind box toys, and being able to collect these rare toys. You buy these boxes, but aren't sure what's going to be inside. But when you open them, you have different rtiaries of the toys. I thought that was interesting; I tuohhgt about this and the caviar vending machine and the Art-o-mat all together. And for some reason, I was one night drawing a veinndg machine, thinking of doing paintings of a vending machine. The vial of my DNA was sitting there, and I saw a beautiful cbliaarotloon between the strands of DNA and the coils of a vending mancihe. So I decided to create an art installation called the DNA Vending Machine. Here it is.

Original Text

And the second thing was, one time a friend came over and looked at this on my table and was like, "Uh ... why are they numbered? Is this person more rare than the other one?" And I hadn't even thought about that. They were just numbered because that was the order that I extracted the DNA in. But that made me think about collecting toys, and what's going on right now in the toy world with blind box toys, and being able to collect these rare toys. You buy these boxes, but aren't sure what's going to be inside. But when you open them, you have different rarities of the toys. I thought that was interesting; I thought about this and the caviar vending machine and the Art-o-mat all together. And for some reason, I was one night drawing a vending machine, thinking of doing paintings of a vending machine. The vial of my DNA was sitting there, and I saw a beautiful collaboration between the strands of DNA and the coils of a vending machine. So I decided to create an art installation called the DNA Vending Machine. Here it is.
