Many theories posit the physical and chemical origins of life. In the short film “aBiogenesis”, CGI artist Markos Kay imagines one such theory — the lipid world theory — in which cellular life began as a soup contained within immiscible fatty membranes. Chemicals trapped within these vesicles interacted and ultimately formed the building blocks of life as we know it, including RNA. Kay’s interpretation is a beautiful exploration of this intersection of physics, chemistry, and biology. (Image and video credit: M. Kay; via Colossal)
