Avant-Garde Scientists
November 2016

For our November Issue, we pay homage to modern-day scientists (past, present, and near future) and those who have left an impact for their bold, singular and oftentimes outsider perspectives of our world. Through these fifteen films, we observe the multifaceted work of scientists: inspiration, documentation, and discovery. But we especially learn the many ways a scientist merges a creative process with scientific rigor to break boundaries, challenge paradigms and propels the emergence of new fields and art/science forms.

This is a joint work by two sisters who are plant biologists. Heather Meyer's thesis work, depicted by a confocal image of a mature plant sepal that is overexpressing a gene that is needed to form giant epidermal cells, is merged with laughing graduate students and a botanical garden. Heather and Rachelboth did research at The New York Botanical Garden, where students laughter, mutual support, and obsessive inquiry counterbalanced the hours behind the scope to encourage risks.
