Insight through visualisation
The idea of this approach is to support scientific research through the many tools of visualisation.
These include classic visualisation techniques, such as drawing and painting, but involve digital techniques such as 3D visualisation and scene-building as well.
Design techniques also include physical experiments, using, for example, clay or 3D printing. In the approach described here, these art and design techniques go hand in hand with state-of-the-art scientific molecular visualisation tools and with lab experiments.
My background allows me to understand complex scientific contents and to exploit art and design methods for the final goal of understanding unknown (molecular ) mechanisms via "physical hypothesis building" and related experimental ideas and suggestions.
You approach me with a scientific question.
After I will have familiarised myself with the topic, we will be working together closely by sharing and exchanging ideas, insights, and visual material that will help us come up with a model or hypothesis.
We will continue this collaboration by performing experiments, you in the lab and I with the tools available to me in order to confirm our hypotheses.
Finally I visualise the scenery in the format and for the purposes that you'll have decided.
