Science underpins modern culture. Every time we flip a light switch, open a computer, pass through security check points or receive an MRI, our lives benefit from and are enriched by the work of scientific research. And yet, the public remains confused by how scientists conduct their work and canít comprehend its value. My art work helps reinforce the connection between scientific research and the health and well being of communities.
"Lindsay Olson is the only artist I've ever met who embraces science in an undaunted manner determined to help us all understand and appreciate it. She finds beauty in the beautiful mysteries of science and makes sense out of the pure logic that undergirds science."
