Grandeur In This View

Grandeur In This View explores the intersection of art and science when taking a microscopic view of bones and teeth. Changes in lighting and magnification, and the application of filters, aid scientific interpretation while also constructing images that stimulate the imagination. In this 25-photograph collection, scientist Dr. Laura E. Wilson captures fossil and modern animals in ways that highlight the stunning abstractness as well as the scientific importance of viewing life through a microscope.

This exhibit is designed for flexibility to fit the interest and mission of host venues, as images are placed in both artistic and scientific contexts. In addition to the images, host venues can choose from a selection of text panels to emphasize the artistic aspects or scientific relevance (or both) of each image. As a result, Grandeur In This View is appropriate for art museums, natural history museums, and other community spaces.

A Look Inside

Medical Diagnostic Imaging, such as X-rays and Computed Tomography (CT) scans, have recently become more affordable and available to non-medical academic researchers. They help to answer a variety of natural history questions. Scientists can use these images to examine the internal structures of preserved specimens without damaging them. Even fossils millions of years old can have their internal structures defined. We can also appreciate these images solely for their aesthetic qualities. They present unusual and intriguing views that reveal the hidden design of the natural world. 

A Look Inside was produced by the Sternberg Museum of Natural History. The exhibit is comprised of 67 x-rays and CT images of the most intriguing specimens from the Sternberg’s Zoology Collection Department. The photographs were captured by Rob Graham, a radiologic technologist and nature photographer.
