1. X-ray Body in Motion - Yoga

    989K Plays / / 15 Comments

    A visual study/exploration of the body in motion with a focus on yoga poses. Our goal for this piece was to create a realistic representation of radiological (x-ray) imaging. Instead of just creating a still image, however, we wanted to combine the beautiful moves of yoga with this new visual approach to bring the full human skeleton to life. Technical challenges included aspects such as achieving proper bone densities and representing actual bone marrow inside each individual bone. Quick note: This is 3D animation (no use of mocap). No one was harmed, exposed to radiation, or grew a third arm.

            Contrary to published accounts, dogs do not simply scoop liquids into their mouths with the spoon-shaped cavity that forms in the ventral surface of their backwardly directed tongue tip. As in cats, an aliquot of liquid adheres to the dorsal surface of the tongue tip and is transported into the oral cavity as the tongue is rapidly withdrawn. Video-fluoroscopy recordings indicate that at least three lapping cycles are needed to transport liquid to and through the oral cavity.

              XRay is a mashup of Microsoft Surface and the iPhone. Stimulant created a Surface application that reveals photographs, but by laying an iPhone on Surface, more layers of imagery are revealed, synced in real time with the upper image layers shown on Surface. The only limit to how many iPhones can be used at once is, well, how many iPhones you have handy.

                At the Daily Planet's white elephant Christmas party, Clark wound up getting the gag gift: A pair of dorky, oversized, Stay-On glasses and a custom shirt with the words Definitely Not Superman puff-painted on. "Very funny, everyone," he chuckled a little too loudly. "Very funny indeed."

                    Using x-ray crystallography to solve protein structure is the focus in our lab. The dance interprets the difficult and time consuming process of obtaining a 3-dimensional protein structure, which is crucial for not just understanding the cellular function but also provides a fundamental step to drug design. As a structural biologist, I hope to take the viewers on a journey into the world of x-ray crystallography through several key stages. Different outfits and music divide each stage. Rather than employing multiple dancers, I intentionally limited the performance down to one actor to show more clearly the continuity from one stage to the next. 1. Production of protein: the most common method to produce large quantities of protein is through the use of a bacterium called Escherichia coli (me). This bacterium is equipped with several flagella (my arms and legs), enabling it to be an excellent swimmer. The flapping movement and ripple effects propel the bacterium towards a chemical. Once the bacterium consumes it, production of proteins begins! 2. Affinity purification: the bacterium is killed via sonication indicated by the trembling movement of gradual collapse, and proteins are released as indicated by the variety of color balls. Next stage is an intimate process, much like a relationship between the child and mother. Only “blue” proteins (child) show affection to the affinity beads (mother, me). 3. Crystallization setup: the scientist (me) takes “blue” protein and tries to find the best crystallization condition. Only certain spatial protein rearrangements and packing result in a small box resembling “unit cell”, which is the basic unit of a crystal. 4. X-ray diffraction: high-energy x-ray beam is shot through the unit cell to produce a diffraction pattern on a screen (me)! 5. Building a 3-dimensional protein structure: the diffraction pattern contains all the information about the protein structure, but requires a combination of mathematical algorithms and computer software to solve it. A final model contains 4 helical structures (my arms and legs). As reflected in the locking/robotic dance steps, the helical structures are rigid but can be rearranged spatially to form a 3-dimensional structure.
