The motivating insight behind topology is that some geometric problems depend not on the exact shape of the objects involved, but rather on the way they are put together. The cell is based on the geometry of the Moebius strip. The twisted surface creates a continuous knot-like condition. The topological characteristics of the cell are endorsed by perforation and seaming. By means of mirror reflections, the Cell aggregates into a field condition – an organ consisting of multiple differentiated cells. The topological entity undergoes multiple non-linear transformations pushing for geometric variation and sophistication.
