Must read of the week: For Better Science Meetings, Invite an Artist The Finch and Pea

Art by @artologica in my living room
This is just such a good idea: For Better Science Meetings, Invite an Artist | The Finch and Pea.  Michelle Banks, also known as artologica, writing at The Finch and the Pea, goes through a detailed argument, with examples, of why one should invite artists to science meetings.

I have been inspired by Michele at many meetings.  And I have been inspired by her art with a science theme (see for example the posts listed below).


I have written a bit here and there about the mixing of science and art.  See for example


But if you read one thing about science and art - read Michele's new post.  Or, even better, start inviting artists to any science conference you have any role in.

  1. The Venter holiday fungi are awesome! I recently found this quite artistic dancing video made in 1971 about protein translation (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9dhO0iCLww). Sorta wish someone showed it to me when I was trying to learn all that back as an undergrad!
