‘Cytokiesis Variations’: two recent sculptures by paper artist (he, himself is not made of paper, you understand) Rogan Brown.
At any given moment millions of cells in your body are dividing and multiplying in order to replenish and maintain your skin, hair, intestine and bodily organs, etc. Cytokinesis is the final and most dramatic stage of mitosis when the cell wall ruptures and splits in two to form identical daughter cells. I have tried to freeze the ultimate moment of transformation and becoming.
The works are currently on exhibition at the Wellcome Collection in London, if you’re passing.
