Like the scientists who each needed the power of creativity and brainstorming to understand their concepts, we approach our work by pondering the phenomena around us and by the idea of creating the imaginative reality we live in. Molly observes the structure of cell biology and studies plant life through patterns and paintings. Amy takes notes on everyday life and the social sciences and learns through documentary videos and short animations. Tesia creates video and data scans of atmospheres, landscapes, and human bodies.
