Science Art: The Haunting Beauty At The Heart Of A Cell’s Wounded Monolayer
Over at the NanoArt21 website, they have a fantastic collection of “NanoArt”, images of nanoscale objects with an artistic flair. Shown above is the work of Jan Schmoranzer.
Seeing the beauty of cellular structures, like microtubules, after many hours of tiring and repetitive lab-work often gives me the kick to go on. I am glad that scientist like me receive public attention for display of scientific imagery and I am excited to expand on projects like ‘Cell Portraits’ by exploring different cellular structures and cell types. I believe that visualizing science – the process of research as well as its end products – will gain importance in the future, not only to draw attention to a particular scientific subject, but also for science education itself.
