serine: a fragile human in a fragile world

Today's science has allowed us to understand better the amazing sophistication of our organism and its architecture at a molecular level. But evidencing that each gear of its complex machinery also is a fragile point.

 

Amino acids are considered building blocks of life. The serine molecule, the protagonist of this series, is one of them, and essential in some metabolic, structural, immunological and signaling functions.

In the first image appears as computer generated snakes, that emerging from the darkness wander through space. The following microlandscapes show us other fragments of this microcosm, with increasingly broken shapes.

My expressions, captures of microspaces constructed by this fascinating molecule, want to be a metaphor of the complexity and fragility of the world, of man and in synthesis of our physical and metaphysical existence.

 

In spite of its imperfections, life always finds a way... or not?
