Art Meets Science (The Art of Translation)

Brains and Beauty 

Elizabeth Jameson uses MRI scans as a starting point for images that capture the mystery and beauty of the brain. She says, “Reclaiming my MRIs through printmaking, color, and the elements of design disrupts the unsightliness of these digital images and allows a view of the brain that combines beauty and complexity."
Shown here is "Valentine", a coronal view of the Artist’s brain stem, cerebellum, and lateral ventricles.

A Tiny World of Green and Gold

Artist Sara Parent-Ramos has been inspired by the microbiome. She says “In my work I explore the wonderful and terrifyingly elusive world thriving inside and outside us, blurring the boundaries between the microscopic and macroscopic in an effort to raise questions about the extent of human agency.” This sculpture is entitled "Symbiont Commensal Parasite 1".
