Shadows of Life: X-Ray Images of Plant and Marine Life
Olin-Rice Science Center, First Floor
Dr. Bruwer, a radiologist, saw the x-ray as an opportunity to showcase the unseen delicacy of the natural world. For over five decades, Dr. Bruwer used the X-ray machine as a way to look inside flowers and shelled marine organisms. Dr. Bruwer called his X-ray images skiagraphs. The words skia and graph come from the Greek words for ‘shadow drawing’. Curator: Mark Davis, Biology.
