World in a Cell is an art science collaboration that uses interactive technologies and a systemic visual language to provoke research and education about the human cell.

The tetrahedral visual language was designed by scientists and storytellers to be scientifically accurate, empathetic and infinitely scalable in time and space. It is the first language to support both exterior and interior representations of cellular processes.

The experiences developed with the World in a Cell platform were generated by the worldbuilding methodology and include intuitive user interfaces that provide the highest levels of data granularity while also conveying clear cinematic narratives regarding molecules and organelles within the human cell.


World in a Cell aims to become a Rosetta Stone for communicating complex structural and cell biology to scientists, students, and the general public.
