Not exactly the place you’d expect to find work by an art faculty member, but here is “Weekly Pills,” a photo collage by Krista Steinke Finch, assistant professor of art (new media).

With this piece, featured on the cover of the journal of medicine and health care published by San Francisco’s Public Library of Science, Krista caps a busy winter. Her photo assemblages, video and film works, and installations have been seen from coast to coast and from snow drifts in Michigan to red clay in Georgia. Inside the February PLoS Medicine, which goes to press today, is a biographical sketch in which Krisa discusses her creative process.

“We find Krista’s work to be a perfect match for our journal,” wrote Liana Holmberg, art director for PLoS publications. “Each month we feature a fine artist’s work on the cover, and the pieces we select all relate to or comment upon aspects of global health and medicine. Krista’s piece is a terrific example of art meeting science. It’s a visually sophisticated and compelling examination of how medication affects people’s lives.”
