Art meets science in a stem-cell exhibit

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the discovery of stem cells by Canadian scientists James Till and Ernest McCulloch, thus the Ontario Science Centre !dea Gallery has brought together scientists and artists to explore the intersection between art and the cutting-edge science of stem cell research.

This collaboration has inspired student artists and designers from a remarkable diversity of disciplines -including fashion design, science and medical illustration, and visual and textile arts - to respond with their personal visions of what stem cells are and what they mean.

Watch the animation made for this exhibition to find out more about stem cells.


  1. That video is a really funny way to make people learn about science. haha.

  2. Science pretty much already is art. Damned good art at that too. We only wish we could be as awesome as nature.

  3. I think the idea of using stem cells is great, and has a lot of potential, shame it's so frowned upon.
