From conception through the end of life, cells have dynamic lives and deaths that dictate the physical changes we experience. However, those connections can still be mysterious even to those studying those processes. Which microscopic revisions inform our aging? We become new humans, unrecognizable to the children we once were. But, how and why? In the work “From Beginning to End”, explorations of time, aging, and the internal governing the external come to light.
Our physical internal selves are invisible to us. Yet, it is those processes that dictate our external selves, and ultimately our identity. Cells are born and they die, often in precisely timed experiences. It is these microscopic beings that are the leaders of our dynamic journeys from conception to after death. Yet, as our visage evolves, our understanding of why has not been answered. How can a minute change within effect the entire being, which is multitudes larger?
In the work “From Beginning to End”, explorations of time, aging, and the internal governing the external come to light. As cells evolve so does the multitudes larger being of which is host to those cells. While in the womb, cells die to form the space between toes. Conversely, as we age cells often escape their programmed death only to form cancerous tumors. It is clear that while we try to control our outside influences, in truth it is these internal influences that dictate our dynamic journeys much more.
