The Leading Strand

The Leading Strand is an initiative founded by Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya aiming to foster a better connection between science and design. The philosophy of her work is that scientific research may be complex or dense, “but through visual translation it is transformed into a medium that makes the information both digestible and delightful.”

I thought this initiative was so cool because it aims to capture the spirit of discovery and innovation in science into an artwork that everyone can appreciate. This reminded me a little bit of our reading, Speculative Everything. The Leading Strand captures the possibilities of scientific research that is pushing at the forefront of discovery, and the audience can see this in the visual translation and imagine the ideas and futures that scientific research can bring to our field of knowledge.
