Unraveling Collagen
2005
135” x 32” x 24” (3.40 x 0.80 x 0.60 m)
Stainless Steel

“Unraveling Collagen” is based on the structure of collagen, the most abundant protein in humans. I departed from the actual molecular structure by opening up the intertwining helices towards the top to create a metaphor for aging and growth, the fulfillment from innate potential into reality.
