Cytoskeletal Laceforms

2012. What is the irreducible scale of pattern?  This project compares the design principle of structure in both biology and technology, to explore the idea that craftsmanship & beauty applied on a nano level might strengthen the integrity and efficacy of data on a macro level.

The cytoskeleton is composed of proteins that give the cell shape and internal organization. Some of the earliest changes in cellular morphology after toxicant exposure are mediated by changes in the cytoskeleton.  Can this be applied to synthetic biology and biological blockchains?  Can we hand-weave biological storage structures that repair, re-shape, and heal bad data, by organizing the data into a beautiful pattern?
