Since the underlying structure of life is based on a network, I decided to look at it more closely. Society, knowledge, nature, organisms, the universe – everything is connected as a network.
1. The Resting Potential
A complex process within the transfer of information in our neural network is the Resting Potential. “Resting potential” – the potential difference between the two sides of the membrane of a nerve when the cell is not conducting an impulse.
I used cotton bud, paper and my camera to visualize a sequence of what happens in and around the membrane.
2. Imitation Game
Are there other processes that can be dynamically visualized with these elements? I played with those materials and through their movement created the impression of something living and organic, though the material itself is not organic.
