On Monday, April 22,
the Undergraduate Math Clubs, MAA/UMA, hosted An Evening with Felice Frankel. Frankel presented her work through a
slide show entitled:
SCIENCE IMAGING: Creating the Nexus Between Art and Information
Emma Previato, CAS Math, MAA faculty advisor, writes:
We are proud to feature this unusual approach to the language of science
and we especially hope to bring about an interdisciplinary experience.
Please share in our celebration of Mathematics Awareness Week 1996 (April 21-26).
Presentation Description: Felice Frankel is an Artist-in-Residence
and Visiting Lecturer (EECS) at MIT, photographing science throughout
various laboratories in the research community. Working in collaboration
with scientists she is creating images which communicate scientific principles
in an accessible way. In 1995, her science images appeared on the covers
and insides pages of Science Magazine, Nature, Cellular Biology,
Langmuir, Discover, GEO and various MIT publications.
She has recently been awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in addition to her
