Investigations into “Scientific Illustration”

It was Albert Einstein who said you cannot understand something until you can picture it and art has been the standard bearer of this truth since humans first left images painted upon cave walls.

The act of documenting our investigations and findings as image has been intrinsically tied to study long before we ever called it science, from mapping the movements of the sun to meticulously detailed copies of herbs and flowers, we have always used image as a carrier of insight, as a map how we understand our world, to explain what we see, and to see what we cannot.
