Kristin Henry is a generative artist and computer scientist, specializing in Science and Data Visualization. Early works include an animation of the molecular biology of HIV, and a neuromuscular junction simulation. Moving from animations of biological systems, to computationally generated visualizations, recent works have included exploring the frequencies of amino acids in various proteins and developing color patterns from them.
Living in San Francisco during the AIDS epidemic had a profound impact on her, and led her to pursue studies in Biology and Physical Anthropology. While working with an AIDS educator in New Mexico, she discovered the power of visual storytelling.
