I am inspired by all efforts to create art that is informed by science. I believe establishing relationships between artists and scientists is essential for further evolution of the symbiotic relationship art shares with man, and an important step in adapting art to a technological future. Last year I was invited by Mount Sinai to their Immunology Retreat where I exchanged ideas with and learned from many of the scientists present. I was lucky enough to be given microscopy images from their labs which birthed my Biophilia series. Myself and the scientists at Mount Sinai had the desire to portray their research through a lens that would inspire wonder in those without a formal scientific understanding.
