Fashion Knitwear Sketchbook exploring micro-art influenced structure & colour of knitted fabrics // Floating in The Great Ether, Laura Collier. This is a good example of how i could develop my project, and the artist gives examples of using knitting to recreate the cells or bacteria.
This is a great foldable on the cell theory. It lists the three parts of the cell theory and gives some kind of visual image to help students make connections to the 3 parts of the cell theory. # 1 - "All living things are made up of cells." The foldable shows a bunch of different living things and in the middle there is a blank spot.
Human body's 'shock absorber' discovered.A recent study by the National Academy of Sciences has investigated tropoelastin - the building block of elastin, which is what gives skin, arteries and lungs their elasticity. Tropoelastin is known for having an odd structure, with a claw-like foot at one end which attaches to cells in the body while a pogo stick-like spring on the other end opens and closes to provide elasticity."We found it functions as a shock absorber between the two locations."
The Great Story III An animal cell, a eukaryote.Before the electron microscope, the complexity of subtle structures within the cell was not known. Now we are only beginning to appreciate the complexity of sub-cellular anatomy and physiology!
Naples garlic The structure of garlic could be mistaken for exquisite coloured glass. When a tiny stem section is stained with toluidine blue, a dye that builds up in the acidic parts of tissue, nucleic acids show up in blue. The dark spot is a bundle of vascular tissue that carries nutrients and fluids up the stem. The full image is a composite of 55 shots.
