This new artwork from Meg Rahaim considers the relationship between seeing and knowing in the context of genetics research using the visual languages of printmaking and handmade textiles. Blind-embossed prints of hand-crocheted objects, highly detailed yet shallow impressions, suggest both the absence of the subject and the presence of things unseen, asking what is knowable about the world through science, art, and other forms of enquiry that employ visual language.
