Abstract

Our inspiration for this piece came from the medical term “cerebral death,” meaning that there is irreversible damage to the brain that has caused the end of independent respiration. Without the capacity to form action potentials our ability to do things as important as form a heartbeat would be impaired. We chose to use black pen for the drawing of the DNA strands to illustrate the overall simplicity of its role in our lives. The watercolor was used as the action potential -the center of our image- to depict the complexity and importance of action potentials in the continuation of life.
