The classical organelle I: mitochondria

This is part 1 of a 4 parts theme, the classical organelle. The four pieces form a whole ‘cell’ quartered. In each quarter one organelle takes priority: mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, vacuoles and Golgi apparatus. This theme, and a few of its variations were developed for Art Meets Science 2014, MDI Biological Laboratory, Maine, USA.

I like the rationale for the exhibition, from their website:

“Creativity, innovation, and inspiration are a big part of what we do. You can’t tackle complex human health problems like why we age or get certain diseases without looking from different perspectives and finding new approaches. Scientists do that and so do artists. That’s why we launched Art Meets Science.”
