Yesterday we had the Art Dropoff Party for the Art on Science: 26 Études project with the Boston-Strasbourg Sister City organization. Here’s a pic of the show-and-tell session: Here are some pics of the printing plates and the finished prints.
The print of a phosphorescent eukaryotic cell in four colors is starting to come together. Here are some pics of the plates I’m using and some of the tools.
Starting to work on the artwork for the 26 Études project, melding science and art with the Sister City program between Boston and Strasbourg. I’m going to layer interpretations of cellular shapes and organization using blind deboss and emboss on an etching press. More as details develop.
Got interested in orbital mechanics the other day… Might do a print based on the Kármán Line, the altitude of 100 km / 62.1 miles which arbitrarily sets the boundary between “Earth” and “space”. Here’s a section, showing the Kármán Line and the thickness of the Earth’s crust, to scale.
I’ve been accepted into Art on Science: 24 études, a interdisciplinary art project that will pair artists and scientists in Boston and Strasbourg, France. Strasbourg is a sister city of Boston, and the project will be part of the 60th anniversary of the Sister City relationship.
I’d like to slip these photos in here, as a teaser for what’s coming up on March 4th: The full details are here:
