This page was created during the COVID-19 shutdown as a resource for Holt/Geleoc Lab members to share their work-from-home projects.  These projects represent our outside activities and hobbies, not necessarily science related.  We hope you enjoy.


Jeff Holt:  I am an amateur drone pilot. I shot this footage at the end of March / early April during the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. As a novice pilot, I only fly my drone over parks, forests, water and deserted cities...

Confinement Artwork

Gwenaelle Geleoc: Picasso said that “Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life”. I am using art to wash away the dust and free my mind from confinement.

Rett Syndrome Awareness

Jeff Holt:  A Boston Children's Hospital colleague, Michela Fagiolini, asked me to make a drone video. Michela studys Rett Syndrome, a rare neurodevelopmental disorder that affects 1 in 10,000 children, mostly girls. To raise awareness, Michela and the Rett Syndrome Association of Massachusetts, convinced city leaders to illuminate several Boston landmarks in purple and blue. I filmed and edited this one-minute video to showcase their efforts and help raise awareness. - Jeff

A Walk in the Park

Graduate student, Hannah Goldberg, was recently out for a walk with her dog Olive.  Hannah told Olive to go fetch the hair cell transduction channel.  Look what Olive found.  Good dog!

Orion Nebula

Jeff Holt:  If I wasn't a neuroscientist, plan B was to

be an astronomer.  The night

sky and astrophotography

have long been passions of

mine.  The night of Jan 30,

2021, I captured this image of the Orion Nebula.

Bode's Galaxy
Jeff Holt:  This is an image I shot of Bode's Galaxy.  I animated the still image to simulate the rotation of the galaxy.  Galaxies typically complete one rotation every 200 million to a billion years.
