The Double Helix cushion is my small tribute to a brilliant young female scientist.
Rosalind Franklin was the British molecular biologist who was responsible for the x-ray photography that led to our understanding of the structure of DNA; Photo 51.
The double helix.
This image is a detail taken from a free to download educational poster designed by Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya for the Science not Silence campaign; a beautiful piece of artwork that contained all of the elements that I needed to tell the story; the photo 51 image, DNA and Rosalind at her microscope.
