Suze Woolf watercolor painting called Looking for a Response

Created for the Innovation Gallery at the Washington Global Health Alliance's Agency event after I was matched with Seattle Biomedical Research Institute. The piece was inspired by labware used to detect blood cell responses, as well as the "Big Data" computational effort of searching for that needle in the haystack.

Each of the layers could be paintings all by themselves:

Special thanks to Daniel Chaim Robbins for laser-cutting the drafting film. The red watercolor layer was punched by hand with a leather punch.
