Critics and historians, like Pliny and Vasari, then recorded with veneration the series of inventions from foreshortening through chiaroscuro that had made possible successively more … Continue reading Thomas Kuhn and the Art Science Paradigm
This week I am a bit behind because of NON-BLOG writing (very exciting stuff. Full details next week). So I’ll use my blog post today to write briefly about somebody else whose work inspires me, rather than making something content heavy myself. 3blue1brown is one of my favorite YouTubers. His videos take a different approach … Continue reading SciArt on YouTube: 3blue1brown
I have begun a new project and thought that’d be worth sharing today. Won’t be writing a great deal on it, but a picture is worth a thousand words so sharing this illustration is two blog posts…. Right? I recently had to teach myself how to use InDesign to do a school project, and it’s … Continue reading New Project: CELL[F] STARTED
I recently had the pleasure of actually seeing some of my work display (though not particularly great work). The Main Library at University of Edinburgh has a display up from something I did about art and science. The postcards were created as part of a collaborative workshop. hosted by InterSci, a University a student society … Continue reading Interdisciplinary Postcards!
As the title suggests... I have failed to write a new post this week. However, I was just recently published online on a very 'Artful Scientist' type topic. This is for EUSci, a science-themed publication on campus at University of Edinburgh. The link to my article can be found below: http://eusci.org.uk/2019/01/28/skin-wars-body-painting-fights-insects-and-disease/?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=facebook&utm_source=socialnetwork&fbclid=IwAR1pM1OsarxoQTdPNAo68Pe6bqhh1qVCpp9hT01fZoT8PM2sa1EnPBTATsQ Here's the actual copy. … Continue reading Skin Wars: or Writing for Others -A COPOUT POST
Today, materials engineers are exploring sophisticated polymers, alloys, and nanomaterials, but don’t be fooled. Materials engineering is an ancient discipline. Since the earliest humans in the Stone Age found the first shards of obsidian (volcanic glass), the material has been useful and fascinating to us, and we have sought methods to make it ourselves. In … Continue reading Glass: The Earliest Materials Engineering
