Defying Limits

Commissioned by Pentagram for HHMI Bulletin Magazine to create conceptual illustrations based on Nobel Laureate Eric Betzig's work on the development of super-resolved fluorescence microscopy. This microscopy technique provides a highly detailed, three-dimensional, animated view of the microscopic world revealing a ground-breaking picture of complex cellular processes and forms.




The Powers of Ten: Lymphocyte

Celebrating the landmark 1977 Eames film, Powers of Ten™, this animation was part of the The Powers Project which invited 40 innovative artists from around the world to produce original segments for each power of ten using a variety of digital and film techniques. This collaborative homage playfully transplants the film’s journey from the physical universe to a unique, imagined universe of graphic abstractions. Funded by and screened at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In this segment, we see 10 to the power of minus 5. We travel through a capillary into a world of red and white blood cells, to find a lone lymphocyte whose membrane we penetrate to finally reach its porous nucleus.
