Confocal Microscopy (Square)
Single confocal LSM800 slice of a live, embryonic day 13, mouse lung produced after crossing an epithelial tissue specific cre with the confetti mouse model. This creates a lung with randomly colored epithelium thus creating the creative coloring. The lungs are actually inverted in this artwork with the trunk of the ‘trees’ represented by trachea, and the branching structure of the lung looking similar to the branching structure one might see in a tree.
