He is best known for creating scientifically accurate and visually stunning biological animations that shed light on cellular and molecular processes and enlighten both researchers and the scientifically curious. His work has earned him international recognition including an Emmy (2005) and a BAFTA (2004). In 2010 he was awarded a Macarthur Fellowship. Drew Berry’s animations have been exhibited at such prestigious venues as MoMA and the Guggenheim. More recently, he has won widespread acclaim for his work on the video clip for Björk’s track “Hollow” from her app-based Biophilia album.
