3D sculptures of molecules

Bathsheba Grossman is an artist and her work is about life in three dimensions: working with symmetry and balance, getting from a zero point to infinity, and always finding beauty in geometry. She uses computer-aided design and three-dimensional modeling, with metal printing technology.

I loved her biology-related sculptures, so I show you two of them. You can even download some on her site.

  4. Yes, and you can even order one. Me, I’d like to see a p53 on my computer desk.
