Laura Ferguson

When Laura Ferguson became interested in visualizing her own curving and rotated spine (the result of scoliosis), she studied anatomy, learned to read x-rays and scans, and spent many hours drawing at Weill Cornell Medical College’s Anatomy Lab. With the help of radiologists at New York University Medical Center, Ferguson was able to have a 3-D spiral CT scan, which yielded dynamic images that she used as source material for her Visible Skeleton series. These rich, multilayered drawings have been widely exhibited at the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Washington, D.C.; the Museum of Science in Boston; and galleries in New York and around the country.
