About the Project
Encapsulating both the history and future of medical breakthroughs, The Promise of Biotechnology is a window into the next generation of scientific advancements. This complex mural seems to take the form of a collage, layering scientific study, human development, the human genome, an aloe plant, and micro-organisms which can both cause and prevent disease. Set atop the aloe plant is the golden ratio, the embodiment of science, art, math, and beauty. The mural was painted over a three-month period by dozens of students, inmates at SCI Phoenix, CSI employees, and at community paint days.
