Metabolism in a cell made visual: Performance occurs in cells.
Everyone knows ‘hot colors’ on a weather map express ‘hot temperatures’. Similarly, darker shades of yellow food colored water expresses increased nutritional demand (glycolysis) within the cytosol of a cell. Each cell image is then matched with the analogous physical intensity of whole body movement. The candles represent mitochondria, where oxidative metabolism occurs.
