Beauty At All Scales

Beauty At All Scales

Artist:
Rachael Fulcher

This is an abstract piece inspired by the beauty found in different levels of brain study. The overall swirling, organic shape is made up of patterns found in macroscopic MRI images of the brain, connecting together to showcase the intricate and detailed patterns. The shape is then coloured with a gene expression colour map of a mouse brain, a much more detailed view of the brain. These two different scales of brain study are connected together as a whole, to create a growing organic shape, reflecting the growth of knowledge about the brain brought by neuroscience research.
