Double trouble III

This is the double-layered work featuring fluorescent threads that I have been working on. You may remember that I described an image shown to me at QBI by Lavinia, Dr Adam Hamlin's PhD student who is researching neurogenesis after ischemia in mice. The new cells were marked with a green fluorescent protein, while other structures were marked with a pink fluorescent marker and imaged separately. When the two images were laid over each other, the relationship between the new brain cells and the brain activity became clear.

The stitching of this piece is now complete, although the framing of both layers for display is a problem my brain is still working on. The beads are stitched onto the organza layer with invisible thread, although it's not completely invisible in the close-up image below:
