As well as illustrated articles and interviews, the magazine will include ‘visual’ and ‘sound’ articles.

Fluid Geometries and Pattern Pieces

David Wade is a Sculptor, Graphic Artist, Photographer and Author of numerous books on geometry and pattern, including ‘Pattern in Islamic Art’, ‘Geometric Patterns and Borders’ and ‘Crystal & Dragon: The Cosmic Dance of Symmetry and Chaos in Nature, Art and Consciousness’.

Fluid Geometries and Pattern Pieces are a selection of some of his own artworks.

Visualising the Sound of Nature

Andy Thomas creates a visual fusion between Nature and Technology, by taking photos and sound recordings of flora and fauna and producing audio responsive animations that visually represent the subject matter in beautiful and abstract ways. By using 3D software to digitize nature, he creates familiar looking structures such as insects and plants that move in a rhythmical dance to corresponding sounds. His work seeks to explore ideas such as self similarity in nature and how evolution and technology co-exist on this planet we call Earth.

Exploring the UnSeen

Jody Rasch is a New York–based artist who explores the duality of nature through scientifically influenced abstractions. He has been exhibiting for over 25 years, including a solo show of his work at Pfizer Corporation’s headquarters in New York. He is affiliated with SciArt Center and Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI).

“My work is inspired equally by architecture and neuroscience. Through a layering of geometric networks, my work provides a glimpse into the complexity and functionality of neural processes. It explores human perception from the inside and out: how we take in and recollect visual information through the anatomy of our brains, and the unruly imagery it creates in the mind’s eye.”

Brainbow and beyond

Bonnie Cutts’ paintings are reflections of distinct periods of the creative journey that is her life, where the process of painting is as important as the finished artwork. In this article she shows some of her work that has been influenced by neuroscience and how this has led on to a more contemplative body of work.

Neuroscience Art

Julia Buntaine is a neuroscience-based visual artist, interested in what has proven to be the most complex puzzle, the epitome of emergence, the brain. The instantiation of form and function united, from the molecular to the level of Neuroscience as a discipline, her work seeks to address the beliefs, theories and findings of the biological phenomenon of consciousness. Beginning with biological form or data, her work departs into the world of aesthetics as she manipulates the idea through the use of scale, metaphor, material and form. Unlike articles and raw data, scientific ideas in the form of art inherently demand subjective judgment and interpretation, and her goal as a science-based artist is to provide the viewer an alternative way to understand the wonders of biology we have discovered in ourselves.

She is also Director of the SciArt Center of New York (www.sciartcenter.org) and Editor-in-Chief of SciArt Magazine (www.sciartmagazine.com) and Innovator-in-Residence at Rutgers University.

From ‘Life Science’

Eran Gilat is a neuroscientist and avid fine art photographer. His scientific research focuses on the study of the mechanisms underlying epilepsy, as well as on the development of an innovative cure for this illness. His latest book, ‘Life Science’, reflects his long lasting confrontation with biological tissues, contemplating issues of materialism, erotica, and mortality, corresponding with the complicated and intriguing category of “animal reminder” in the visual arts.
