The inspiration comes from my job studying biopolymer networks in the cellular cytoskeleton.
It sounds complicated, but basically it's just a bunch of microscopic wires that are all stuck together. I'm more-or-less studying how cell's change shape when you push on them.
Hopefully, the sculpture makes it a little easier to imagine what I'm working on. I'm hoping to submit it in a Science/Art Competition coming up this spring at my school.
