Dallas architect and artist Jacob Haynes went all out for his “microscopic universe” themed Christmas tree this year. His laser-cut micro-organism ornaments are amazing, but his pipe cleaner DNA garland really completes the look:
omg it’s Dr. Lither’s Christmas tree!!!
I was looking through old hard drives looking for certain data (after my computer died) and found this animation I made in high school about my characters in their series “DNA: The Future”. It was meant to be a movie trailer (if the series was a movie). I never fully finished it, there are still a few storyboards. (And course holy crap old pre-college animu inspired art style)
For being made in about 2003 on an old Windows 98 computer with only a old copy of Flash, Photoshop 7, Raydream Studio 5 (for the 3D parts) and some who knows what video editing program, I was (and still am) pretty proud of this. <3 All the visual content (photos, videos, art, 2D AND 3D animation) are my own too!
While the art is old the feeling is the same, I really want to write this series some day before I die (as a set of sci-fi books).
Gina Glover, a photographer with a degree in Human Genetics, is the creator of these amazing works of art. “Chromosomal Stripy Socks” won the Medical Research Council/Novartis/Daily Telegraph Visions of Science award and appeared on the cover of Nature.
If you are interested in science photography or the intersection of art and science I highly recommend reading the interview!
THIS IS HIGHLY RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS
I miss this place.
occasionally i think to myself HEY I THINK I’LL GET OVER MY FEAR OF THE WONDERS OF LIFE PAVILION BY WATCHING A BODY WARS RIDE THROUGH VIDEO!!!!!
you don’t understand THIS IS NOT SOMETHING I CAN DO ALONE
I LOVE that pavilion. I miss the old ride they had with Michael Jackson in it (Captain EO). I still geek out over the DNA sculpture every time I go.
A picture from my work on 4-21-2011. I helped to organize this Guinness world record event. More than 2,800 people from my company took over a street in South San Francisco, and made a dna helix chain all the way down. Yes, the helix is made entirely of people! This is a helicopter view. Enjoy.
