I Made a Protocell!

Well, in a virtual sort of way. I was at Scott Snibbe’s studio in San Francisco yesterday where he showed me his team’s latest interactive creation: Looking for life.

Scott getting zappedOur protocell!This piece is a visual representation of primordial goo that invites you to interact by first self-assembling a lipid bilayer around you and then zapping some lightning to get the generative process rolling. By touching a neighbor you can join membranes and form a protocell that floats up the wall. It’s addictive and possibly coming to a museum near you.
