The Entrance

Billy Paolucci

eXpressions™ Award: Red Ribbon

I'm representing the concept of mutation. The research experiment was trying to identify how the mutation affects the cell development. My piece shows how the amino acids are being infiltrated by a mutation. The mutation in the cell development is what leads to the disease's development.

Music from Within

Kat Kirk

eXpressions™ Award: White Ribbon

My piece is based on the mutation that occurs with the proteins, the music notes and staff representing the change of shape and function after the mutation. The staff is supposed to look as if it is being blown away and ripped from the page, similar to how the person may feel while experiencing the disease.
