Under the Microscope

Michael W. Davidson, working at Florida State University, put some spirits and cocktails under the microscope. The resulting images are simply stunning. No wonder the drinks make you feel light-headed.


The vibrant colours of microscopic art work well in a simple, mainly white interior. This print is by Ilus Art, a company that sells scientific images of human cells and donates part of the proceeds to research.


Looking for a cool finishing touch? How about these throw cushions, with microscopic images in gorgeous colours? They’re available from Etsy shop MacroGrafiks.under-the-microscope-82


A microscopic image will look great as part of a wall gallery, too. Of course, the danger is that the other pictures will seem a bit tame compared to it. But that’s the secret to a good collection: it’s all about the balance. Btw: this is an image of a kidney stone!


Even for the lovers of dark and moody colours, there are microscopic images to be found. Like this beautiful one of vitamin C! It’s a great, unexpected pick for this Scandi chic interior.


Microscopic images aren’t all bright colours and psychedelic shapes. Some have softer shades and shapes, like this one of plant cells. And that’s why it looks great in a pastel interior.
