Imagining Science: Immy Smith

Ask me anything   I’m an artist and scientist. Its an interdisciplinary life for me. The oddest things in nature, and the cells under my microscope, inspire me to make art. I'm interested in the overlapping places where scientific concepts, biological images, and surreal art meet. I like to combine brain cells, birds and bugs, moths, minerals, moss, lichen and deep sea creatures... if my subconcious can combine it, I can draw it!

My art diary is at http://unquantifiedamount.tumblr.com/ and I'm part of Imagining Science, a living art-science collaborative. You can find us all at imaginingscience.com and I'm on dA here - http://immy-is-thinking.deviantart.com/
