I created my heart sculpture to represent the disease Glycogen Synthase Kinase-3ß (GSK-3ß). I made my heart in the shape of a balloon to symbolize the part of the heart that balloons out. When this part of the heart balloons out, it can cause a heart attack and/or immediate death. The colors of the heart and the flowing ribbon represent the colors of trauma, which are red, blue, dark purple, and light purple.
