Deconstructing Patterns

01 February - 01 December
Organized by: The Francis Crick Institute
1 Midland Road

A myriad of intriguing patterns exist throughout the natural world, many of which are visible to the naked eye. For biomedical researchers at the Crick, however, the patterns they seek are minute cellular and molecular forms. They are also extraordinarily dynamic: they grow, shrink, move, connect, break and rearrange.


Deconstructing Patterns provides a glimpse into three intricate developmental patterns studied at the Crick, each one introduced by a unique artwork. In this context, deconstruction is a fundamentally creative process. By taking patterns apart, both the artists and scientists are seeking new insights into the puzzle of how the complexity of the human body arises.
