LINDA NYE TAKES US ON A BIOLOGICAL TOUR DOWN BACTERIA LANE

Linda Nye created these images for the Discovery Place Science Museum exhibit “THEM” in Charlotte, North Carolina. “THEM”, was an exhibit on microbes that cause disease. The series was chosen in the Institutional Category for the Communication Arts 51st Illustration Annual.  

This panel focuses on the bacteria E. coli that abound in the large intestine. Normally they help digest food and destroy damaging microbes. 

This panel focuses on the bacteria H. Pylori moving into the mucous layer on the epithelial cell lining damaging those cells.

This panel focuses on the bacteria that stick to teeth causing tooth decay, and are blocked by more harmful microbes.

The images are in the pull out clear tube to simulate a “core sample” of the organ (skin, gums, stomach, colon).
