Paper Project: confocal microscopy of paper


Last week I went on a class field trip to the Keck bioimaging lab at ASU, where Chuck Kazilek showed us the Paper Project. It’s basically a bunch of art projects made from images of paper taken with a scanning-laser confocal microscope. Many of the images can be viewed with 3D glasses, but are still incredible anyway. The site even shows you how to make your own 3D glasses, paper making techniques, and oodles of other fun stuff. – Link.

    Chuck’s great. He also runs ASU’s Ask a Biologist website where students and teachers can ask questions that will be answered by biology faculty and grad students (to which I contribute). He also hosts a podcast.
