Drew

Drew Berry is a biomedical animator at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in Melbourne whose work has transcended the boundaries between science and art.  A biomedical animator’s role is to translate real science into a visual story so people can see it in action.  These visual stories are to do with what happens inside our bodies and animation is the best way to demonstrate and teach concepts such as the complex mechanics of DNA, cell development or the impact of disease.  While Drew’s work is firmly based in the scientific sphere he has also been exhibited as an artist in major national and international institutions.  He talks to arts interview about his art and the collaborations in which he has worked.
