Metal Wire Chromosome


I was suppose to spend last night working on a new media project so I took out my beading supplies hoping that intuition would lead me somewhere I wanted to be. I ended up making a sculpture of a chromosome using twirled metal wire and glazed beads. While it is quite pretty and fun to play with, it does not have a new media component. The metal will conduct electricity but I don’t know what I’ll make it do since at the moment it is a free-standing sculpture and to tie it down with wires would be a hinder to its portability.
