Gifts of Art presents ‘Celebrating Science & Art’ by BioArtography
The brilliantly colored images in this exhibit were taken in the course of scientific research, and are beautiful in their detail, form and symmetry. For each one, an accompanying explanation describes its significance.
They were all created by BioArtography, which transforms science into works of art. The subjects of the images are cells, tissues and organs, from a wide variety of biological sources (plants, worms, fruit flies, fish, mice and yes, even the human brain).
The colors are added by investigators, to allow them to see the otherwise transparent tissues. By looking at these microscopic images, you will learn about research into normal embryonic development as well as cutting-edge investigations into diseases such as basal cell carcinoma, bipolar disease, epilepsy and cancer.
