We’re not sure what the original design intentions of this kid’s mobile hanging over a bed spotted in the online blog Weekday Carnival was. Whether the goal was always a sort of abstract, minimal, hanging DNA strand or not is hard to say, but we can only say our science-loving brains saw that first when we glimpsed this room! And whether well-intentioned or not, science and design fans could certainly steal this idea!
It doesn’t look too terribly difficult to make: some thin dowels, some small wood balls, some thin fishing line. Looks like gravity and the nature of hanging things would do the rest. See it for yourself here.
Do you think this kind of looks like a hanging, abstract, minimal modern DNA strand? What do you see?
