Photo-a-day 162: DNA sculpture

close

Warning: This post was published more than 5 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 5 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

This sculpture of DNA stands in Newcastle’s Times Square, which is the central square of the Centre for Life.

The Centre for Life is a remarkable place, uniquely combining world-leading genetic research, NHS fertility treatment, a public science centre, and a series of bars and nightclubs.

Times Square hosts an outdoor ice rink in the winter, and frequently has other visiting attractions: the Ladyboys of Bangkok seems to be annual visitors! Today, a Renault Twizy assault course had been marked out – I didn’t give it a go!
