DUYGU'S SCIENCE-ART WORK
When I look through a microscope, I feel like I am traveling to different worlds very few people can see. This is a feeling that never gets old. I started drawing in an attempt to share with others the wondrous things that I observe as a scientist. In my artwork, I use the beauty we encounter in scientific research to celebrate life, cultivate curiosity, and incite appetite for discovery. The seeds of each drawing often come from an encounter with an astonishing life form, organ, structure, pattern, or cell. I dig deeper into the science by reading scientific papers on the subject and examining visual elements more closely before I finally combine them into a SciArt drawing.
