Marie Curie Re­flec­tion

The Hamilton Spectator - - OUR PULSE - CLAIRE NESATHURAI, GRADE 8, AN­CASTER MEADOW

My collage de­picts the fa­mous fe­male sci­en­tist, Marie Curie. Marie was born in 1867 in Poland and died in France in 1934. Dur­ing her life, she dis­cov­ered and stud­ied ra­dium and polo­nium with her hus­band. For her re­search, she was awarded two No­bel Prizes and was the first per­son ever to win twice. The mo­tif in my back­ground is the ra­di­a­tion sym­bol. I chose this sym­bol be­cause Marie stud­ied ra­di­a­tion through­out her en­tire life and she died from ra­di­a­tion poi­son­ing. The em­pha­sis in my collage is Marie Curie’s face, which I de­vel­oped us­ing line, shape, and pro­por­tion. I chose to de­pict Marie Curie be­cause she sparked a whole gen­er­a­tion of fe­male sci­en­tists which is in­spi­ra­tional to me.
