Science as an art of miniature horizons

In the course of my restless perambulations across nanotechnology under dreaming spires and between punting on the rivers Cherwell and Isis, I discovered in the depth of a Microscopy Suite an artist with an eye for the truly small: Dr. Louise Hughes and her website, Miniature Horizons. An expert in scanning and transmission electron microscopy specializing in electron tomography, she is an award-winning science communicator. Louise has created, visualized and preserved some of the most stunning images of nature in the realm beyond small and promptly turned them into wearable scientific artwork. As science photography becomes the object of increasing competition, one can easily see why.
