      Hidden Beauty: Exploring The Aesthetics Of Medical Science
    • Friday, May 29, 2015
    • This collaborative project by a scientist and artist asks the reader to consider the aesthetics of human disease, both within and beyond the context of people's preconceived social systems. Disease is a dynamically powerful force of nature that acts without regard to race, religion or culture. These forces create visually stunning patterns with a remarkable ability to evoke human emotion in isolation that differs when viewed in the context of the disease that produced the image.This exhibit showcases some of these fascinating images from the world of medicine.
