Family and genetics

Family tree consists of strips of bobbin lace, fabric and silk paper each representing an individual in the family tree tied together at the base with red thread to represent ties of blood. Chromosomes shows the pairing of the chromosomes prior to cell division which is depicted in Dividing cells. Parallel universe goes to the other extreme and shows how inconsequential our world and our own concerns and fears appear in the great scheme of things..
