This collection of images celebrates the ways in which aspects of science are communicated in visual form. It is far from comprehensive but more will be added. It demonstrates ways in which the dictates of the information challenge the ways in which the pages are laid out, the balance of text and image/s, the use of colour, the point of view, the repertoire of the diagrammatic, even the balance of seriousness and the jocular.

 

The Scientific Propositions in a landscape section explores what happens on the page when the abstract and the representational are incorporated within the same page.

 

I was inspired by Nigel Henderson and others of his generation in the Independent Group for whom the images of science were a constant and vital source of delight in understanding the world and its ways.
