A show of student work at UC Berkeley from the spring semester of 1999. Li Qiao studied the vertebral column from direct observation (top right) and then drew the sensation of her own vertebral column (top left). She related the two through her use of wash.

The drawing below by Melissa Wenzel and the drawing above fulfill the first part of the vertebral column assignment. In both drawings the entire space of the page has been activated. The first part of the assignment is a study in anatomy which keeps in mind the relationship between form and place.
