GRAVITATING TOWARDS NEW BEGINNING 'Born Brilliant' can be viewed as a knot, intertwining strands of biology and economy. Here, carbon fibre sheds like tree bark and embodies the earth worm Caenorhabditis elegans. C. elegans is the first multicellular organism that has had its genome sequenced, allowing scientists to study and interact with animal behaviour and its traits. The enlarged, transparent, loose worm- like shape is therefore instructed to repeatedly tie itself into an overhand knot as a gesture of implied human use. Whoever writes x, can mean simultaneously, 1, 2, 3, the infinite, rational and transcendent; real and complex bodies, even quaternions. One might argue that the world is comprised of knots, interlinking bodies whose functions are rarely, possibly even never, wholly independent. Artists: Viltė Bražiūnaitė, Tomas Sinkevičius
