What can art, the size of the width of a human hair teach us about science?
Why, you may ask, would a researcher want to make microscopic flowers made of crystals? As it turns out, experimenting with creating beautiful formations of this size allows us to discover new and potentially useful structures, as well as understand better how different chemicals and properties interact at the micro level.
This project is an incredible testament to what can happen when we break down the walls between art and science! Here is The Creators Project with more….
Fascinating! Here are just a few more images from this magnificent project!
What would a world look like where art and science were able to interact freely? What scientific breakthroughs could we make if creativity were more readily introduced into the laboratory? What new ways of looking at the world would we gain if artists borrowed from science in their work?
Innovation happens in the realm of possibility unleashed with creativity. And marvelous projects like these microscopic crystal flowers are helping us to look at the possibility with new eyes!
Stay beautiful & keep laughing!
