About MITOCHONDRIA MEDITATION:
For much of Earth's history, the planet was full of life, even in places we normally think of as inhospitable, but all of it was single-celled life (bacteria.) I took inspiration from Radiolab podcast and a book by Nick Lane to tell a story about bacterial endosymbiosis forming eukaryotes by incredible chance, allowing multicellular life to evolve for the first time. Mitochondrial DNA shows linkages between our cells and other eukaryotes' and between all eukaryotes and bacteria.

Here, zebras and giraffes represent multicellular life. They're surrounded by various shapes of bacteria and plasmids, sections of DNA that bacteria can pass between each other. At the center of it all is mitochondria and DNA.
