The parallels between artistic strategies and natural occurrences are many. Where Neo-Impressionistic masters, such as Paul Signac or Georges Seurat created divisionistic works, mimicking the separation of colour from light that our eyes mesh together to create an optical illusion of blended colour, now, with the endless possibilities of science, we can see similar ‘special effects’ in microbiology.
Upon first observation, Dr. Daniela Malide’s photograph of connective tissue cells looks like a close-up of a painting by the aforementioned Signac or Seurat. Yet these connective tissues have been co-transduced with fluorescent proteins, giving off the vibrant colours seen in the image. The cells begin to connect with each other, sometimes meshing colours, but they are still reminiscent of the technique of painting with colour and light of the Neo-Impressionists.
It’s just another, funny little coincidence, of science and art, coming together to both make something beautiful, and teach us about the world around us.
