My current idea is to turn a book (The Linus Pauling Catalogue, which I got at OSUsed!) into my art piece. Specifically, I intend to cut the pages in layers (like so:
and the 8th one on http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/book-paper-sculptures/) to show normal and sickle cell hemoglobin, since they were the subject of some of Pauling’s research.
I may also include a collage aspect, interspersing pictures in the layers of hemoglobin. Here is an example of the collage style I want to achieve: http://craftycreativegal.com/james-giant-peach-book-sculpture/.
