I've spent the month jumping between data sets surveying micro/macroscopic imagery for my film.


There's an abundance of material available so my only trouble is picking the right pictures, and the resolution tends to be a little low, especially in the motion pictures. But we can wrote a short code to create a semblance of an enhancement. 

The most rapturous collection I've discovered depict the mitochondria, organelles that generate energy for the cell. Portraying the outer membrane, I find the long grooves of the mitochondrial surface mesmerizing. They are captured via electronic microscopy, so, unfortunately, they are fixed in time.

So, we have to figure out a way of extracting information from black and white pixels and convert them to points in three-dimensional space.
