One thing I love about the scientific community is how amazingly creative everyone is. The stereotype of the boring scientist who doesn’t think past “his” work is not only a stereotype, I don’t even know how it could have become one. Every scientist I know, pursues a creative focus from brewing award-winning beer to writing and all the other other stuff in between that orbits creativity.
Kick-ass scientist extraordinaire Anca Segall is one of those creatives who also runs a top lab out of San Diego.
Here is a short story she wrote.
Here is a poem she composed in imitation of Elizabeth Bishop’s “One Art” (who doesn’t love that poem?).
Here is a collaborative project with Arzu Ozkal. Another amazing woman who lives her art in a way that shows artists they don’t have to be allergic to science; rather, she integrates both disciplines in ways that enrich her work.
Let’s do more art+science play!
“Let’s do more art+science play!” – Play is so good for each of us, and we don’t do enough of it. Art can bring science into the playsphere in ways that are less easy for science on its own. Thanks so much for the ping.
