That's funny, Cabe, and I agree with the impression of your artistic eye.

I would liken those photos to modern/post-modern artworks on a molecular scale. On the other hand, perhaps I need refinements in my judgment.

Isn't this fun Liz? You;re not alone--I'm not sure anyone understands how the tech works at the small scale: spontaneous self-assembly is one of the weirdest things in nature, whether the materials doing the self-assembly are natural ones or engineered, as in this case.

These are impressive photos, Ann! I have to admit I don't quite understand how the technology works, but the visual images themselves are quite compelling.

These huge structures are still small at the macroscale, but are now big enough to be viewed. Seems like science fiction actualized.
