Silver Rolls
Scientific images revealed that, depending on the specific type and function of a bone, fine threads (mineralized collagen fibrils) that form the framework could have several arrangements. The patterned networks of threads and voids are similar to an industrial material designed as a spacer in the construction of skis. I worked intuitively and flattened the fabric in a heat press then, by drawing into the thermoplastic material with a fine tipped soldering iron to create a lattice, mimicking fibrils network. The fabric was made conductive on one side only in order that when plated, parts of the original construction would be visible. It was plated silver.
