Drosophila larvae painting

Project LIAison look at collaborating art with science. One of there pieces recently caught my eye because of its organic appearance. It had been created using drosophila (fly larvae) that had been dipped in paint and were used to make distinctive trace marks on paper as they moved around.

The natural pattern they created reminded me of my own studies as they give a similar appearance to the structure of blood vessels.
