Cells to Self: Exhibits & Artworks
Exploring how cells divide, react, interact, and work together in an organism.
Cells to Self developed new exhibits to supplement the Exploratorium’s existing collection on genetics and embryonic development. The new experiences explore how cells move, divide, interact, and respond to their surroundings, as well as how cells work in concert in the individual organism—the self.
The art pieces in Cells to Self offer surprising and provocative perspectives on the role of genetics in human biology and identity.
Many of the new exhibits use live organisms, are based on active areas of scientific research, and incorporate authentic scientific instruments.
