On short notice and on our last meetup discussion of the melding of art and science. This is an example of the merging and an exhibition of art for FitBit.com device and other science/art.
Sunday, as I mentioned in our intro meetup. At Real Art Ways (R.A.W. or RealArtWays.org ) an exhibit of art and science.
This sunday has : Artist's lecture/exhibit and Q&A with Markus Kayser, exhibiting artist from Intimate Science IS and Research Scholar in Residence at MIT. Also IS exhibits. For his page see :
Later this Sunday @R.A.W. movies ( inc. 7:15 Glacial Ice: on climate and glaciers ). also another Art flick at 5PM that For 7 PM movie which is more science oriented See
In general :- Intimate Science (IS) features artists who are engaged in non-disciplinary inquiry; they aren’t allied to the customs of any single field, and therefore have license to reach beyond conventions. This kind of practice hinges on up-close observation, experiential learning, and inventing new ways for the public to participate in the process. And through their engagement with “intimate science,” a more knowledgeable public might well be able to influence what research is supported and adopted by the larger culture, and the walls of science can become more transparent.
This is the 1 of 3 upcoming Artists get Intimate Science together events. See
For this particular IS event. See
While the gallery is very informal and loose about donations and things, we can support them. The show is posted as "no charge" and normally this is not an issue but contributions are welcome : Gallery Admission:
$3 Suggested Donation ,Free for Members and Cinema Ticketholders
Later I may post the other IS events if this turns out well. There is some risk that this is not so good but without risk there no benefit. BTW While looking at this one of the other RAW exhibiting artists Philip Ross mentioned a salon which I googled and found the following :
We can meetup at 2:45 and the get-together & lecture is scheduled from 3 to 5 PM ... [ perhaps to dine somewhere or do art movie at 5 ]. Then science/art Movie at 7:15 "Chasing Ice " with National Geographic photographer and some really high tech time lapse photography in the harshest and beautiful glacial environments.
