Rosalind Franklin / ll hree of us


Engraving on wood


On a piece of wood taken from the site of the famous Old Cavendish Laboratory, James Watson's 1962 Nobel Prize speech is engraved without the letters A, G, C or T, the DNA bases. In this speech no reference was made to Dr. Rosalind Franklin or her contribution to the discovery of the double helix. Here, this significant absence is marked and, thus, his words become unintelligable.
