The Science and Technology series by Franciszka Themerson points at the interest that both the Themersons had in science and its connections with art. This series shows human interactions with complex machinery. The drawings depict people engaging with a radio antenna, an electricity generator, a still for distilling spirits, and a machine for making tea. Several of these images were published in Technology magazine during 1959 and 1960.
