Michal Gavish: Nano Portraiture (DNA and Protein)

Leonardo Art Science Evening Rendezvous (LASERs)

Feb 9, 2017

Michal Gavish, Multimedia Artist with PhD in physical chemistry, Washington, D.C. The February 9, 2017 DC Art Science Evening Rendezvous (DASER) was the DC Regional Forum (Keck Center, Washington DC).

Topic: Michal Gavish uses her background as a scientist to adopt sub-micro perspectives for portraying the fragility of DNA and body protein structures. She abstracts imagery from preliminary laboratory results that she transforms into larger than life installations and animations.
