As some of you may already know (or have quessed), I am a scientist, better to say a biologist. No, not the one that goes through nature but the one that works with all the cool mechanisms inside the cell :)
As it happens a friend of me (also working in molecular biology) showed me some images she made and wasn't quite happy about them. I wondered why, because they looked good!
So how do you say your friend that you like her work and that it is good? With words? We all know that we tend not to believe in words alone... and being a scientist I thought I should give an example for my view:
Your images look so good, you could wear them as earrings!
Therefor I printed one of her images (cell culture, the blue dots are stained cell nuclei and the green dots are stained protein which is only expressed in some of the cells), glued it on cardboard, put a lot layers of 3D glue on top... that was it!
And hey, she really showed off her work! She had put them on during the local research festival where she presented her work using also THIS image! :)
And if you now think we are all a little bit strange... trust me... we are worse, way worse! ^^
