Selection of pattern and structures in nature, I drawn 10 structures and pattern with ink on paper to explore the variety of them. I depicted wood, scales, DNA, Litches, Water and five more in order to understand similarities, connections and to illustrate my idea of evolution and connection of organisms through time. These patterns building the base for my in part C created publication.
UNSPECIALIZED CELLS 2/10 Unspecialized cells can mutate and create new and more specified cells, which follow a more specic function.
FOAM 3/10 Foam is a simple form, that creates di erent structures over time and changes constantly its appearance.
DNA 4/10 “A mutation is a change in DNA, the hereditary material of life. An organism’s DNA a ects how it looks, how it behaves, and its physiology. … [A] change in an organism’s DNA can cause changes in all aspects of its life. Mutations are essential to evolution; they are the raw material of genetic variation. Without mutation, evolution could not occur.” – Understanding Evolution WATER 1/10 “Water is life’s matter and matrix, mother and [media]. There is no life without water.” – Albert Szent-Gyorgyi PLANTS 5/10 “Plants provide the foundation for most of the world’s ecosystems and provide [living beings] with essential services.” – Natural History Museum, London
SKIN 7/10 Biological structures of both, animals and humans, show evidence of similar structures, due to the fact that they share genetic information through similar origin.
LICHENS 6/10 Two or more organisms live together and beneift from each other, they create a community, associated in symbiosis, by mutual benefit.
SCALES 8/10 “Seeing this gradation and diversity of structure in one small, intimately related group of birds, one might really fancy that from an original paucity of birds in this archipelago, one species had been taken and modifed for different ends.” – Charles Darwin (1845)
WOOD 9/10 “Man is a Tool-using Animal…without Tools he is nothing, with Tools he is all.” – Thomas Carlyle
CRYSTALS 10/10 Evolution is a complex and ongoing process, which is determind by “lucky accidents” and “mistakes” in the DNA sequences.
