This work-in-progress documentation shows a virtual microscope made from hundreds of individual Scanning Electron Microscopy images. These create a super-resolution image and the ability to zoom in and out without the use of a microscope. 

The project experiments with gestural interfaces that allow the audience to interact with nanotechnological materials in an embodied way. The two samples shown here are CuTCNQ, a crystalline material that acts a sponge for toxic environmental and industrial chemicals and ZIF-8, a nanoengineered material that acts as a gene-delivery system and cancer therapy. These nanoparticles are shown here on top of prostate tumour cells.
