The Mitochondrion was a research-based project modelled after an organelle of the same name. It functions specifically as a shelf, adopting the function of the organelle as an important storage of a nucleotide within a eukaryotic cell. The fluidity of its shape mimics the deformable physical structure of the organelle that is composed of phospholipid bilayers (two layers of lipid molecules) and is divided by three modules. Each of the modules has varying undulations that allow for reorganization into various configurations.
