Biovisions — Rich, beautiful Diversity in a single Cell

David Bolinsky is a medical illustrator, whose company, Xvivo, has been working to illustrate creatively the dynamics of life to Harvard students for a programme called Biovisions. Thanks to Patrick Mayfield and Steve Whitmore, as another spin off of this year's Leadership Summit I've been exploring TED Talks, creative ideas from some of the world's greatest thinkers sponsored by BMW. David's work (which he introduces in this video) is just incredible. A single cell contains all manner of diversity of form and activity within it. Christians can hold at the back of their mind the biological pictures of the Church in the NT. Static institutional images and models are pathetically inadequate, given the beautiful dynamic diversity and relatedness of everything God called 'good' because that's the way he wanted it, through and through!
