Further Blurring the Line Between Science and Art

Today's Science Times contains a nice article about Felice Frankel, a senior research fellow at the Initiative for Innovative Computing at Harvard and a research scientist. Frankel's images have been published in over 300 journal articles and/or covers and various other publications for general audiences. Frankel has helped change the visual face of science, and that is helping to engage people with science. Frankel says, "“To me the idea is to engage somebody to look at something, and they don’t even know it’s science,” she said. “People are not intimidated by pictures. It permits them to ask questions.”


  1. I don't know, it wasn't clear from the article.

  2. Oh no, she's sick of the one I used to illustrate my blog post on this same topic this morning. (Great minds think alike! Or at least, great minds read the NYT.)

  3. Well great minds surely are not reading the NY Post!
