Art in the time of cholera

Pretty drawings of some bugs? Is this your first thought? They certainly are pretty, but looking closer, one might notice that in reality these insects are deformed, which was the result of the radiation.


Cornelia Hesse-Honegger, scientific illustrator from Switzerland, makes illustrations of morphologically disturbed insects, which she finds near the nuclear areas of the infamous places like Chernobyl, nuclear power plants in Switzerland, radiation-contaminated areas in Europe and the US.

Cornelia sketches how perfect symmetrical lines of bug surface are slightly changed, deformed by dangerous exposure.

Beautiful but scary.
