What you can’t see with your naked eye may be far more beautiful than you can imagine. The goal of the “Art of Systems Biology and Nanoscience” event is to share fascinating scientific images of nature at its tiniest and most stunning.

The art show will display photo micrographs, scientific illustrations and animations from two award-winning and internationally-renowned artists, Drew Berry from Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Australia and Thomas Deerinck from the University of California at San Diego. 

Berry is renowned for his "Animations of Unseeable Biology," visually beautiful and scientifically accurate animations to illustrate how the molecules in our cells and tissues move and interact. His achievements include being the recipient of a 2010 MacArthur "genius" award as well as the artist and producer of the wildly popular music video Biophilia  “Hollow”  for the singer Björk.   

Deerinck’s award-winning imagery has been featured on the cover of many top scientific  journals and popular periodicals.

Additional images generated by University of New Mexico and LANL-based systems biologists and nanoscientists further demonstrate that life, even at this miniscule scale, can be immensely beautiful.

On Friday evening at 6 .p.m, Dr. Mark Ellisman, UC San Diego, will speak on "Imaging the Dark Matter of the Brain" and on Saturday at 5:30 p.m., Dr. Angela Wandinger-Ness, UNM cell biologist's topic is "Envisioning Therapies by Picturing Disease".

On Saturday, from 2:30 pm to 4:30 p.m., artists Drew Berry and Thomas Deerinck will offer standing 10 minute presentations about their work, followed by small group tours around the gallery.

The hung and digital art will feature the spectacular scientific illustrations and animations of 2013 artist in residence, Drew Berry from the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne, Australia. Berry is renowned for his "Animations of Unseeable Biology", visually beautiful and scientifically accurate animations to illustrate how the molecules in our cells and tissues move and interact. 

About the Art Show

The fourth annual “Art of Systems Biology and Nanoscience” event is a two-day public celebration of new and fascinating ideas and images from the two emerging scientific fields of systems biology and nanoscience. The entire event is free and open to the public.  

The event is sponsored by the New Mexico Center for the Spatiotemporal Modeling of Cell Signaling; the New Mexico Cancer Nanotechnology Training Center; the UNM Cancer Center; the Los Alamos National Laboratories Center for Non-Linear Studies; the LANL Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies; the host gallery, 333 Montezuma Arts, and 1st-Mile Institute.
