Beautiful where science meets art! Here, data from NCEDC.org and the USGS and UC Berkeley have been sliced out into veneers based on magnitude, then glued onto and image that began it's life at NASA's Visual Earth and wrung into the Times...
Comparing different embryonic stages of different animals is a tool that can be used to infer relationships between species, and thus biological evolution. This has been a source of quite some controversy, both now and in the past.
If you haven't come across these amazing animations yet, they are definately worth exploring. "The RSA Animate series is an innovative way of sharing world-changing ideas. All audio is taken from the RSA's free events programme, and all animations are created by Cognitive Media."
This morning, during a session on adaptation to climate change, Heather M. Stoll of the Department of Geology at the University of Oviedo, in Spain, tackled the question of why we should care if climate change is due to natural anthropogenic forces. She took the example of some porcelain that her grandfather had hand painted and that she was conserving among her most precious possessions. She said that it was one thing to perhaps one day have it destroyed by a natural disaster like an earthquake or a volcano eruption--Pompei, near Vesuvius in Italy, is full of broken China, she said--but it would be quite another to leave her precious porcelain on the sofa at the mercy of anthropogenic forces. The photo of two somewhat mischievous-looking little boys helped us see her point.
The 11th Wellcome Image Awards were announced on 23 February 2011, recognising the creators of the most informative, striking and technically excellent images among recent acquisitions to Wellcome Images, as chosen by a panel of judges.
The disciplines of science and art are intertwined in more ways than you can imagine. The benefits of using art to communicate science is articulated beautifully in Communicating Science Concepts Through Art.
Briefly, here are the conceptual art strategies Buczynski et al.(2012) used and how they used them:Depiction – Seventh-grade students were asked to apply their new knowledge about “scale, shadow and proportion” (Buczynski et al., 2012) to observe and draw the human body. This strategy was employed to move students away from the usual “stick figure”-type of thinking often observed in science lab notebooks.Projection – Students were asked to predict the outcome of a scientific event using hand-drawn images instead of words.Reformatting – Utilizing art forms from popular culture, students were asked to reformat scientific content into “a comic book, magazine, advertisement or film” (Buczynski et al., 2012).Mimicry – Students were assigned the task of becoming botanists by mimicking how botanists collect information in the field.Metaphor/Analogy – Students were asked to create a visual metaphor to describe how the digestive system works..
