The Genetic Code
from the series ZELLULAR, adhesive film letters, ca. 100 x 100 cm, and paper object, 2015

The letters stand for the four nucleic bases forming the genetic code. Triplets of letters code for specific amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. The pattern is based on the unfolded paper toy chatterbox, in which one can choose from four options in three steps, thus creating fictional triplet codons in a playful way.
