Digital Bricks at Science Gallery with Drew Berry
Please join us for the ResCon 2022 closing event!
During this event, Drew Berry showcases his Virus one million times project for Science Gallery’s Digital Bricks, as part of the forthcoming exhibition SWARM. Drew will share the background, creation and technology of this extraordinary data visualisation of 8 human viruses and the antibodies that swarm like butterflies around the viruses, in a kaleidoscope of colour.
Drew Berry is a biomedical animator who creates beautiful, accurate visualisations of the dramatic cellular and molecular action that is going on inside our bodies. Beginning his career as a cell biologist, Drew fluently navigates technical reports, research data and models from scientific journals. As an artist he works as translator, transforming abstract and complicated scientific concepts into vivid and meaningful visual journeys.
Since 1995 he has led biomedical animation within the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Australia. His animations have exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum, MoMA, V&A, the Royal Institute of Great Britain and the University of Geneva. In 2010, he received a MacArthur Fellowship “Genius Grant”.
