Cancer Research UK has launched an innovative art trail, based on the DNA double helix.
The organisation has teamed up with SomeOne to install twenty one DNA-inspired sculptures around London, in order to raise awareness for the Francis Crick Institute.
The double helix sculptures has been customised by top artists, including Ai Weiwei and Orla Kiely.
The pieces range from the sleek and futuristic to the colourful and avant-garde, celebrating the complexity of DNA.
Along with Rosalind Franklin, Maurice Wilkins, and James Watson, Francis Crick discovered the structure of DNA in the 1950s.
These amazing installations will be placed around London for ten weeks; discover them here and tell us if you’ll be looking out for them.
