Scientist Els Geelen commisioned the help of visual artist and designer Pim Tabak for the cover of her dissertation ‘Making genetics not so important, families dealing with genetic testing for a familial heart disease’. Aside from the cover design of this dissertation the artist created a second dissertation.
Guided by the manuscript that Els was working on, Pim embarked on a visual journey of exploration and on the way made a series of artistic images in permanent ink on paper. Thirty-one of these artistic images are on display, as well as both dissertations.
