The Art of Microscopic Cells


British artist Joanne Berry’s new project, “Hijacking Natural Systems”, brings together art and science to create works that are not only beautiful, but also foster awareness of advancing treatment for diseases such as diabetes and obesity.

Berry spent six months working with biomedical engineers and learning about live cell interactions to prepare for the project. She applied her research to various art forms, creating sculptural light boxes, vinyl artwork and short films that illustrate the biological processes of cells. The resulting project enables observers to view art in a new light, while making the field of science more accessible.

“Hijacking Natural Systems” will be on display for six weeks at Nottingham University’s Djanogly Art Gallery until April 9.
