Artistic Images Made With Science Technology

Or are they plain scientific images? Definitely not plain. What would art be if not strongly paired with science? They are always catching with each other and providing us with stunning content. Technology is always helping scientist and artists push their boundaries. This time, we would like to present a couple of images (videos) made with confocal microscopy. Any resemblance with video art is pure coincidence. The first, a beautiful video showing the metaphase, probably the most recognizable phase of mitosis, thanks to the technology advances provided this time by Nikon. This images were made with a C1si/TE2000 laser scanning confocal microscopy and belong to Nikon's MicroscopyU. MITOSIS MICROSCOPIC VIDEO The second is a video animation created with a LEICA LAS AF 3 3D by Dr. Masahiro Fukuda, Prof. Haruo Kasai, Center for Disease Biology and Integrative Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan: excitatory pyramidal neurons in Layer 5 partly express EYFP. Watch it here. Amazing products are there for people to thrive and created by companies that can understand those people.
