The cardiovascular system and respiratory system are very closely connected and rely on each other heavily. Understanding how they are connected is one of the objectives for this course.

The cardiac tissue is broken up into puzzle pieces. I decided on this design because I believe in an abstract way, it represents my research beautifully. The cardiac tissue looks indiscernible from the real thing (or at least it is supposed to/would if I were an artist) except for the representation of puzzle pieces. This is used to show the viewer that it was manufactured and put together by scientist and did not occur naturally in the body.
