          Abstract

          This is paper discusses the underlying research and challenges of a large-scale physical artwork entitled Scales of Life – a collaboration between artist Elaine Shemilt from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, University of Dundee, Mike Ferguson, Regius Professor of Life Sciences, also at the University of Dundee, with Jo White of BMJ architects. The artwork forms the façade of the new Discovery Centre for translational Research and aims to communicate key areas of Life Sciences research carried out within the building. It utilises printmaking techniques combined with digital visualisation and engineering in metal, and depicts each of the four physical scales – Molecular, Organellar, Cellular and Tissue, that provide the basic understanding of biology and inform the treatment of many diseases.
