Double Helix by Franco Castelluccio (ART)

by Accidental Bear

Sculptor Franco Castellucio confronts science and art in his latest work, “The Double Helix XX-XY.” The work images an animated strain of DNA, with sinuous male and female bodies twisting to the top. Castellucio also twists the notion of “survival of the fittest,” his desire being that people confront, in his work, the notion of enduring compassion.

The sculpture is accompanied by a new book, Double Helix.
