The Wellcome Collection was opened this past June by Dr. James Watson and I finally got a chance to visit yesterday with my five-year-old son. We were both fascinated by the displays; he liked the elephant and whale hearts while I, of course, liked the Genomes section of the Medicine Now exhibit.
Here are some photos from our visit. Click to see larger images.
Sound Chairs upon entering the exhibit (left); a representation of the information contained in all 23 pairs of the human chromosome, to the right is a working microassay robot used in the Human Genome Project.
Andrea Duncan’s Twenty Three Pairs artwork using images of an “odd sock drawer” and Barber DNA by Robin Blackledge.
Anagram by Julie Cockburn featuring DNA bases.
Jelly Baby by Mauro Perucchetti representing a cloned human. (And, no, my son is not a clone! )
For more, see the Wellcome Collection official descriptions of these key exhibits.
