About the author (1991)

Felice Frankel is a photographer who aimed her camera at landscapes for 20 years. This resulted in the award-winning book, Modern Landscape Architecture: Redefining the Garden. In On the Surface of Things, co-authored with chemistry professor George Whitesides, she changes her focus, photographing such colorful scientific phenomena as DNA strands and chemical reactions. In 1991 she received a Loeb Art fellowship at Harvard, where she explored a relationship between science and art. Joining MIT in 1993 as an artist-in-residence and Guggenheim fellow, she teaches researchers and students how to add a visual element to their research. She is also writing a book on the same subject, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
