ScienceOnline this past weekend really has me reassessing what I'm doing as a blogger and with my artwork. The conference as a whole and the Art & Science session in particular seem to be continuing as discussions in the blogosphere.
Here's a few links.
-Conference blog & media link page (new ones at the bottom)
-ScienceOnline'09 Flickr set
-Ryan Somma at Ideonexus has a concise overview of the Art & Science session. In addition to the 5 categories I had outlined, Ryan has suggested an entirely appropriate type of artistic science: "Found Art".
-Lenore Ramm of Eclectic Glob of Tangential Verbosity reports feeling inspired to possibly create art once again
-Brian Switek of Laelaps mentioned cave art in the comments here and explores the connection in "The Plight of the Pleistocene Poet".
-Betül of Counter Minds summarized her excited views of the conference
-Bora at A Blog Around The Clock has posted a few photos of the seriousness and shenanigans on the Friday night.
-Jessica Palmer at Bioephemera (can Tatjana and I refer to her as our ephemeral third moderator? Or am I being lame?) shows how the intersection of real science and artistic fancy can be a ball of confusion, (that's what the world is today). Hey. Hey.
-Eva of Easternblot has left a comment here about that elusive grail of mine, art directing the course of scientific research. That's two examples! (First example found here, in the comment and fascinating paper by Andy of The Open Source Paleontologist.)
I may continue to use this post to collect up various links. Working out what to do with myself and my artwork is another matter.
