Culture Sculptures

I’m always attracted to art and sometimes that art is inspired by microorganisms. The colorful and psychedelic patterns created by Paenibacillus dendritiformis and P. vortex are among the most well known examples. I recently found inspiration in the sculptures of artist Rogan Brown. A recent NPR article entitled Is This Snowy Wonderland Or The World Inside A Petri Dish? showcased the artist’s micro-inspired paper sculptures. The level of intricacy and detail is astounding and more reminiscent of a scanning electron micrograph. I’m especially fond of the following quote from the interview. “We live in a world dominated by science,” Brown says. “Art needs to work hard to keep up or use the language and imagery of science for its own ends.”
