forms from Colin Raymond on Vimeo.

This is video is an exploration of an analogy about the molecular landscape of the human body.

Our body is made largely of protein, complex molecular machines that begin as a simple linked chain. they take their final structure by wrapping up upon themselves in order to release a kind of tension or energy stored in hundreds of small electrical charges.

In this video I add tension to a thin cotton rope by twisting from one end. with enough tension higher order structures form spontaneously. the shape and movement of the rope has a remarkably organic and sinister quality.
