This large piece of work was created for the ‘Design4Science’ exhibition curated by Shirley Wheeler from the University of Sunderland. The artwork integrates digital media and calligraphic processes to visually interpret aspects of science. The research led to the use a calligraphic font ‘Impetuous’ that was designed by Ling. The text used was taken from Fred Sanger, the twice recipient of the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. The work addresses the question of how to visually interpret science with calligraphy? Ling’s outcome was to draw a parallel between geometric calligraphic forms and that of viral structures.
