process: art (of science) expo
This exhibit - on the design process involved in illustrating science concepts - was held to celebrate the opening of the Iridescent-ONR NY Science Studio. Guest visitors included the US Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, ONR Admiral Nevin P. Carr, and NY Congressman Jose Serrano (in photos).
Each panel depicts the development of various science and engineering, educational T-shirts and graphics designed by IOANA for the several educational non-profits: 1. The MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) process, 2. The relationship of the Reynolds number to animal locomotion, 3. Electricity, and 4. Wind energy.
This was an invitation for the public to understand the number of thoughtful decisions that go into creating a beautiful science concepts graphic. How does one conduct research and translate complex, yet abstract, ideas into effective images, within a limited space, and with a limited number of colors?
4 panels each 18’ wide x 9’ tall
