Drew Berry is a biomedical animator who creates beautiful, accurate visualisations of the dramatic molecular action going on inside our bodies. Beginning his career as a cell biologist, his raw materials are technical reports, research data and models from scientific journals. As an artist he works as a translator, from abstract and complicated scientific concepts into vivid and meaningful visual journeys. Since 1995 he has been a biomedical animator at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research, Australia. His animations have exhibited at venues such as the Guggenheim Museum, Museum of Modern Art, the Royal Institute of Great Britain and the University of Geneva. In 2010 he received a MacArthur Fellowship “Genius Grant”.
