Protein Sculptures: 'Synergy'

“Synergy” is a sculpture for the Center for Integrative Proteomics Research (Rutgers University, NJ) based on the structure of the collagen molecule. Collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body, consists of three protein spirals that wind around each other, thereby creating a tight meta-spiral that is one of our body’s key structural elements.
