Michael E Davias – LiDAR: Seeing the Earth in a New Light

When photography captures the Earth’s topography, vegetation often obfuscates the fine details. Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) allows the solid surface to be viewed in a new light. I have applied LiDAR technology to research the “Carolina bays”, ovoid basins found by the tens of thousands in the USA.

Neva Delihas Setlow

“Color, light and science are my areas of artistic interest. My work explores both the abstract interactions of color and light as well as science in art. Whether I create a work of pure abstraction or one developed from a scientific concept, creating art holds an endless fascination for me. It is the excitement of discovering the unknown that I find moving.”

John Atkin: Access to Justice

The “Access to Justice” project has taken four years of careful negotiation and numerous visual concepts before The Law Society of Upper Canada eventually selected my landmark artwork for a prime location bridging Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square and University Avenue, via the pedestrianised promenade of McMurtry Gardens of Justice.

Kate Bavister: Embedded in literature; Coherent Cultures

Inspired by the natural world with a background in science, I make intuitive art with paint and mixed media then process images digitally to share educational stories and ideas. By using art to explore science, enhanced learning and insight can arise through both the creative process and the end result.

Alan MacDonald: Metaphysical Art

“As a metaphysical artist I am concerned with a three-way comparison between: metaphysics (science of subject / why), Science of object (how), and information technology, the most important metaphor we have for the nature of consciousness.”

Joseph Norman: Superorganism

“I am exploring adult fairytale narrative to develop the landscape as a dramaturgic and anthropomorphic element wherein all forms of life are connected through energy conversion, growth and decay.”

Kay Hartung: Biovisions

“My work is abstract, though influenced by observations of microscopic imagery. Colonies of cellular shapes migrate, flow and multiply. Clusters of orbs are tethered together in unknown universes.”

Cryptic 2017: Art and Science

Cryptic 2017 examines the relationship between art, science and technology, and features artworks that use technology and science variously as medium or message. Explore digital and kinetic interactive artworks, virtual reality, and mixed media installations, all set in the idiosyncratic spaces of the Crypt Gallery, London.

Cecelia Chapman: Strange Love 2017

Cecelia Chapman is an artist, designer, video producer and writer whose works primarily examine image, perception and consciousness. Her first design position with the physicist Dr. Frank Oppenheimer in the Exploratorium working with engineers, artists and scientists to develop perceptual and physics exhibits, influences her practice to this day. Chapman produces drawings, and short video in collaboration with sound artists online.

Elena Nemkova: Affective Accidence

    The sculptures of the series “Affective Accidence” are a kind of solidified emotions. The organic and synthetic materials shape in their layers the crusts of power of the human cerebral reactions to the internal or external stimuli. The forms are based to the data provided by 3D fMR brain scanning and some testimonials […]
