Talking about integrin pairing around an obstacle
It's easier/more interesting/provoking to talk about the interaction of substrate and biology, now we have the screenprints to look at. 'They're exactly what we're working on except 50,000 times bigger' says Nikolaj. Nice to have a different format to see things with.
Started playing with layering hex and square grids using screenprinting
I've been wondering about/drawing the differences between the square and hexagonal nanopit patterns used in different research projects.
Lino cuts based on drawings I've been thinking about about for a while, since initial conversations with Prof Gadegaard about the controlled disorder dot patterns. Nice to be able to go back to them and make prints now.
Nikolaj: "They actually tell two stories: 1) This is how we form the displacements you have been drawing. 2) The sequence is actually how the electron beam lithography machine works."
Was great talking to Marie Cutiongco about her research into stem cell response to different dot patterns. She showed me around the lab and how to take pics of her dots through the microscope.. I need some practice to get clearer images...
I have a desk in an office shared with three amazing people whose work I'm trying to get my head around... Lots of conversations about patterns and how cells respond to them.. Why have they chosen these patterns to work with? How are they made? Talking to Paul Reynolds about the grid patterns used in various ongoing bioengineering projects.. comparing my drawn versions and his algorithm-generated formations.
