PDB Newsletter Biomedical animator Drew Berry ( Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research ) is known for his fantastic and detailed depictions of complex biomolecular systems. His award-winning work, which can be viewed online, in television and film, and in museums throughout the world, now appears in new and unusual venues thanks to a collaboration with the musician Björk. Björk's latest project Biophilia manifests her love for music, technology, and nature in many ways: an album, iPad app, touring production (which includes a 24-woman Icelandic choir and a musical Tesla coil), and a music education initiative.

DnaTube.com - Scientific Video Site Scientific Photography Scientific photography is about visualizing things that can't be seen with the unaided eye. It is used to describe natural and man-made phenomena in a way that clarifies, educates, and illuminates. Through scientific photography, we can describe things to other scientists, but also to the public, which in many cases supports the research with its tax money. Science photography that is beautiful and otherwise aesthetically pleasing is able to capture the imagination of the viewer to a degree unlike any other style of photography. Something about images of things never scene before: witness the fascination with the remarkable space photographs brought back by the Hubble telescope. Scientific photographs address a deep human need to explore, to push frontiers, and to answer fundamental questions about the world around us.
Science Photography Spotlight On January 7, 1839, an installation artist and chemist named Louis-Jacques-Mandé Daguerre announced to the French Academy of Sciences in Paris that he had perfected a photographic imaging technology that could be used on a large scale and was reproducible. His invention, later named the daguerreotype, was based on a special property of silver iodide: when exposed to light, the molecules undergo a chemical transformation that can be turned into charcoal-colored shadows and lines when later exposed to developing mercury fumes. The more intense the light, the darker the resulting silver-mercury amalgam. When a sheet of metal copper coated with silver iodide, for instance, was exposed to a street scene for a prolonged period, an image of the street was represented on the daguerreotype plate as lines and shadows of varying brightness. Daguerre initially thought his invention would be suitable mostly for personal use in travel logs, art installations, and architectural records.
