Signals [Crop 2] (by REAS)

—-

Signals, 

2011. 

Digital print, 

48 x 11 feet (14.6 x 3.35 meters). 

Collaboration with Ben Fry. 

This is a 2x time-lapse sequence from software that constructs images from protein relationships within a cell. The image was translated into a mural for building 76 at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

Cell behavior is controlled by interconnected proteins operating in a network to actively transmit instructions. These networks become dysfunctional in cancerous cells. In this image, each graphical cluster represents signals between networked proteins in a cancer cell as they change over time. Individual arcs are signals from one protein to another; the size of an arc corresponds to the magnitude of the signal. Signaling data provided by the laboratory of Professor Michael Yaffe.

"Fact of the Day: This year, July has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays. This happens once every 823 years. This year we’re going to experience four unusual dates. 1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, 11/11/11 and that’s not all…Take the last two digits of the year in which you were born - now add the age you will be this year, The results will be 111 for everyone in whole world. Have a nice year."
