Bio Unbound: Stuff of Life is a collaborative project involving ACCAD, the Department of Design, the Department of Dance, and theDepartment of Entomology from OSU. The project is hosted by the Columbus Center Of Science and Industry (COSI) and represents an exhibit prototype for learning about DNA.

The DNA multi-user touch screen workbench allows users to learn the concept of Complimentary Base Pairing by manipulating and connecting nucleotides by hand. Interacting with the wall projection next to the workbench, users engage their entire body in exploring the concept of super coiling.
