Biomimetic Art
Jamais Cascio, 16 Oct 04

Artist and trained quantum physicist Julian Voss-Adreae creates wood and steel sculptures modeled after proteins. According to a writeup in Genome News Network, "the sculptures are based on proteins found in nature, and his models must meet two criteria: They have certain aesthetic qualities and are 'scientifically significant.'" GNN has several example sculptures, and more can be found at his eponymous website.

Very cool stuff indeed.

Wow. I love the fact that he includes an article on making your own protein sculpture. And did you see "Tall Fir Alpha Helix"? That's some cool-ass art.

Oh, and is this biomimetic, or biomorphic?
