Craft meets science
Not since June Oshiro’s DNA scarf have I seen such a fantastic mesh of art and science, barring, of course, the various amazing knitted brains, dissected rats, etc. Genome quilts! Artist Beverly St. Clair has developed a pictographic means of encoding genetic information in quilt designs.
That’s just so cool! It blends my first degree of Biology with my happy hobby of knitting, and just looks awesome too!
really interesting..especially so in that the “hepatitis c” quilt was really “ugly/scary” (I mean that in the kindest, artistic sense, of course)
I wonder if genes for arthritis translate gnarly, genes for kindess-beautiful, etc..
thanks for pointing it out,
Oh yea, wanted to tell you, the pawpaw are insanely loaded this year!
