Ethical Science and Arts…..Pigs may fly!

This was a golden find for me. This picture was taken at the New York Museum of Modern Art in 2009. These are blown up photographs of pig cells that have been artificially cultured and grown round a scaffold to form wings structures, hence real Pigs Wings!

Maps, Flags, Culture and Ants

One of my first brushes with Modern Art was, like most, a visit to Tate Modern (I know I was artistically uncultured until the 90s at least). I remember seeing this called Pacific by Yukinori Yanagi and being instantly attracted. I have always has something innately built in about maps, flags to me are in the […]

I do love it when people take the cold hearted tools of science and use it to add a little emotion to the theme. “Nanoscientist Jonathan Howse and artist Mark Fell collaborate on an art installation that uses a high power optical microscope to track the movement of nanoparticles, producing synthetic sound which is played […]

Apollo…..the musical

After my recent visit to the Kennedy Space Center in Florida I have been a little obsessed with these space missions. This was an immense achievement (at one point there was 400,000 people working on the Apollo mission at one time).
