"Proteins as Pictures

How do you draw something you can’t see? You use your imagination, of course. Maja Klevanski begins with ribbon diagrams of proteins as determined by techniques like x-ray crystallography, with their helices, sheets and noodly loops suspended there like frozen spaghetti. Using digital imaging software, she rotates them until a familiar form is suggested. Is it a butterfly? A goat? Or a mother bear with its baby?

Using a combination of pure whimsy and nods to the protein’s actual function, she adds lines and shading until the protein takes on a new life. Wonderful stuff."

Detail from The Empress Eugénie in 18th Century Costume, 1854, Franz Xaver Winterhalter.

This official portrait of Eugénie depicts the empress in a Second Empire adaptation of an eighteenth-century gown. Her interest in the previous century, especially her fascination with Marie Antoinette, is well documented.
