Exhibition "How do we look?" at the Francis Krick Institute



"On display are a collection of working images, rather than works of art, each created by a scientist to help solve a research problem. From simple illustrations to computer models, the selection our scientists share in the exhibition is diverse. Some are extraordinarily beautiful, others deceptively simple; all have been created as tools for discovery."



"Timothy created the film by magnifying the heart under a microscope and taking over 1,000 thin slices from it using a machine called a microcrome. The cut surface was photographed each time a slice was removed and the stack of photographs reassembled using computer software into the virtual 3D model of the heart that we see here."
