Left brain right brain





I took these 1-2 years (!) ago while waiting for an experiment in lab. A series of ~25 have been in local exhibits and a couple reside in the administrative offices of my school. Another lab photoshoot is long overdue!
PS. The one with the crystals is just a close-up of some dirty glasswear that had been sitting out for weeks!
PPS. To any scientists out there, yes those are glass pipettes. We're the only lab I know of who washes and re-uses the glass ones instead of throwing away plastic ones. Biomedical research can be EXTREMELY unfriendly to the earth (it's incredible how much plastic and styrofoam gets thrown away every day), so this at the very least is something. Hmm maybe we should sell reviewers on our "green research style" to get an edge on funding.

OK all this science stuff is very, very pretty. If you took a picture of the stuff I worked with, it'd be a lot of library books. So I think, in terms of aesthetics, science may win (but barely...)

Love the last one especially. I kind of agree with Tom on the aesthetics of science. Maybe we should challenge you to somehow make books and paper look just as cool! You can do it. :)

that second picture made my eyes all goofy. in a very fascinating way.
