MayBe Art is HOW LIFE BEGAN “Each of us is composed of matter that has a largely inanimate history before finding it’s way onto our plates or those of our parents. It was once part of the sun, but matter from another galaxy would do as well. Anything whatever, if broken down far enough and […]


MayBe Art is PHOTONS Lisa Jacobson oil on linen 18″ x 24″ John Manzi “O Study- 3” Digital Photograph www.johnmanzi.com Bio-photons are the particle aspect of light waves possibly being carried in human cellular structures then exposed as imagery. Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp believes that photons are permanently emitted from biological systems. All matter/energy recycles and […]


MayBe Art is an ELECTRIC RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ITS CREATOR AND EARTH Lightning is the occurrence of a natural electrical discharge of very short duration and high voltage between a cloud and the ground. Some types of lightning, including the most common types, never leave the clouds but travel between differently charged areas within or between clouds. […]

MayBe Art is GENETIC Rosalind Franklin DNA 1B Crystallographic positive etched into Photogravure print X-ray diffraction images of DNA led to the discovery of DNA double helix. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) plays essential roles in cell metabolism and genetics, and the discovery of its structure helped scientists understand how genetic information is passed from parents to […]


MayBe Art is SUBCELLULAR STRUCTURE Stephen C. Harrison, Ph.D.
Harvard Medical School / Howard Hughes Medical Institute http://crystal.harvard.edu/harrison.html We are structural biologists concerned with the organization and dynamics of macromolecular assemblies. The long-term objective of our research is to determine how protein interactions determine subcellular structures. Ribbon diagrams, also known as Richardson Diagrams, are 3D schematic […]
