Drew Berry

Animator, The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

The molecular machines that create your flesh and blood

If it were technically possible to magnify objects 100 million times, we could directly watch the writhing, dynamic molecular world of DNA. However, even with the most advanced imaging technology, the biggest molecules are resolved as static blurry blobs, with scientists relying on other techniques to determine how they interact and accomplish their roles in creating life. Drawing upon fragmentary evidence from all fields of biomedical research, Drew Berry sets out to build accurate, insightful visualisations of cellular and molecular worlds. Each animation is founded upon the latest data from research labs, such as X-ray crystallography, to reveal the extraordinary discoveries being made at the frontier of biology.

Drew Berry is a biomedical animator at The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute. His scientifically accurate and aesthetically rich visualizations are elucidating cellular and molecular processes for a wide range of audiences. His animations have been shown in exhibitions, multimedia programs and television shows, and have received international recognition including an Emmy (2005) and a BAFTA Award (2004).
