Quantum Wave Theory – A Model of Unity in Nature

October 10th, 2011 § 0 comments § permalink

Energy is space in motion. Space is energy at rest.

All things in the universe generate patterns of energy resulting from their motion.

Quantum Wave Theory is a model of nature that grew in response to several questions: What, dosage exactly, online is gravity? How are charge and gravity related? What gives rise to the fundamental unit of energy? And especially, information pills what is space?

Our attempt to answer these questions evolved into conversations that continued for more than a decade. Quantum Wave Theory is an artwork, a prose poem, that is the result of that collaboration. The theory attempts to unify energy, mass and force as manifestations of a single entity. We refer to that entity as space.

The Sea Within Us

Atlantic Ocean at Chatham, MA

‘What do you love about the ocean?’     ‘There is some kind of music that lives there’ — late-stage Alzheimer’s patient

The ocean is Nature’s artwork. It provides us with a full sensory experience in 3D, total surround sound, and a varied array of olfactory and tactile delights.

When we compare the experience of reading literature and poetry, listening to great music, visiting a museum, going to the theatre, opera, or ballet with the effect that the ocean has upon us, the similarities are striking.

The ocean awakens and keeps alive in us the sublime order and elegance of Nature. The profound experience it brings resonates with us, because we too are Nature.

Origins of Self-consciousness

July 9th, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink

bluehead1

For a brain to be self-conscious it must be able to represent the world symbolically, clinic which implies the use of symbols such as marks, visual shapes and patterns, rhythmic and tonal patterns. Expanded long-term memory is a primary requirement for a self-conscious brain. By definition, a self-conscious brain must also include language, with an innate set of grammatical rules, or syntax. For a brain to be self-conscious, it must be able to think abstractly, question, predict, generalize, categorize, and reason.

My theory of the origins of self-consciousness proposes that the combination of increased brain capacity, intensified socialization, and introspection has resulted in THE SEARCH FOR PERSONAL AND SOCIAL IDENTITY, which ultimately led to our ability to think about ourselves both privately and socially.

Did Darwin Meet Wagner? On Evolution, Education and Becoming

Harvard Graduate School of Education – Visiting Scholar Lecture

Thursday May 7, 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

208 Longfellow Hall, Harvard Graduate School of Education, Appian Way, Cambridge MA

DID DARWIN MEET WAGNER?  ON EVOLUTION, EDUCATION AND BECOMING

Edvin Ostergaard — composer and science educator — will explore the 1859 parallel emergence of the idea of evolution in Darwin’s _The Origin of Species_ and in Richard Wagner’s opera “Tristan and Isolde.”  The talk will also address the potential of bringing together biology and music in teaching about evolution and becoming.

Edvin Ostergaard, a visiting scholar at HGSE, is Associate Professor in
Science Education, University of Life Sciences, Norway.  His musical
compositions reflect an interest in the relationship between art and
science, as in “The Einstein Resoundings” (2005), based on Einstein’s 1905 physics; and “The Two Moons” (2006), based on Leonardo’s astronomical texts.

An Arts Catalyst / Tate Britain Conference

Eye of the Storm

An interdisciplinary conference on scientific controversy

19 / 20 June 2009

Tate Britain, there Millbank, vcialis 40mg London SW1, UK

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

The Arts Catalyst and Tate Britain announce an international call for artists, scientists, social scientists, theorists, policy-makers and other disciplines, to present in Eye of the Storm, a conference exploring scientific controversy from an interdisciplinary perspective.

Eye of the Storm aims to explore a range of controversies, from esoteric arguments between physicists over the structure of the universe, to disputes about the causes of species decline and climate change, and highly charged public controversies around the use of stem cells and the distribution of genetically modified organisms. When heated debates around the challenge of climate change have shown how abstruse uncertainties within a scientific community can be amplified and distorted to challenge the whole notion of human-caused greenhouse warming, Eye of the Storm sets out to examine the relationship between scientific uncertainty and public controversies around science.

Artist Nathalie Miebach at Museum of Science, Boston

March 3rd, 2009 § 0 comments § permalink

Weaving Science into Sculpture with artist Nathalie Miebach
Wednesday, March 11 at 7:00 p.m.
Museum of Science, Boston

What do basket weaving, climate change, and sculpture have in common?
Artist Nathalie Miebach literally weaves scientific data related to
meteorology, climate change, and astronomy into brightly colored,
three-dimensional sculptures.  Come hear how – and why – she creates these
singular pieces that expand the boundaries of how scientific information
can be represented and what art can mean. 

One of Miebach’s sculptures “Temporal Warmth: Tango Between Air, Land, and
Sea” is on display in the Museum exhibit halls through April 12.

This program is part of the Museum’s ongoing “When Science Meets Art”
series.  It is free and open to the public.  Seating is limited. First
come, first served.  Free seating tickets available to the general public
in the Museum lobby beginning at 5:45 pm the evening of the program. For
more information, visit mos.org/events.

About the Artist

Nathalie Miebach holds a Master of Art Education and a Master of Fine Arts
from Massachusetts College of Art. She is the recipient of the
International Sculpture 2006 Outstanding Student Award, an LEF grant, a
two-year fellowship at the Fine Arts Work Center, a Bemis Center for
Contemporary Arts Residency in Omaha, NE, and the Berwick Research
Institute Residency in Boston. She is currently the Artist in Residence at
Amherst College. Her work has been shown nationally and throughout New
England and has been reviewed in Art in America and Sculpture magazine.
She is represented by the Nielsen Gallery in Boston and the Reeves
Contemporary Gallery in New York City.

Artist Statement

“My work focuses on the intersection of art and science and the visual
articulation of scientific observations or theories. Using methodologies
and processes of both disciplines, I translate scientific data related to
physics, astronomy, or climate change into three-dimensional structures.
My method of translation is principally that of weaving–in particular
basket weaving–as it provides me with a simple, yet highly effective grid
through which to interpret data into three-dimensional space.

“Central to this work is my desire to explore the role visual aesthetics
play in translation of science information. By utilizing artistic
processes and everyday materials, I am trying to both question and expand
the boundaries of traditional visual translations of science data (e.g.,
graphs, diagrams), while at the same time provoking the viewer and myself
to rethink expectations of what kind of visual vocabulary is considered to
be in the domain of ‘science’ or ‘art’.”

Nature, Science, and Art

November 3rd, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink

rose.jpg

Nature is everything, seek everywhere, cure in the present.
Nature is all things known and unknown.

Science is a formal method by which we investigate nature.
The Scientific Method is society’s way of verifying itself.

Art is a process of modeling nature, of representing forms, structures
and ideas.
Art raises social and cultural awareness, makes the invisible visible,
connects the improbable, breaks down artifice and presumption.
Art acts as a continuous feedback loop, constantly monitoring, evaluating
and modifying cultural activity.

Art and science share the goal of identifying, and identifying with, nature,
including a predictable fascination with human emotion, thought and
behavior.
Both science and art aspire to truth without compromise.
Both challenge the way we see the world as individuals and community.

John Holland

Nature and inquiry – in San Pedro, CA??

September 9th, 2007 § 0 comments § permalink

An Exhibit just opened in San Pedro that sounds interesting and right up our alley… wish i could have gone to the opening. it was curated by Victoria Bryan.

here’s the scoop – “Nature of Inquiry, Part One” The exhibit includes thirteen artists from San Pedro, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Portland and Dublin: Amerinda Alpern, Ellen Bay, Bronwen Casson, Susan Dampf, Jan Govaerts, Sabina Haque, Dar Horn, Joan Mueller, Jon Nakamura, Hilary Norcliffe, Angelica Sotiriou, Molly South, Katie Stubblefield and Sayon Syprasoeuth
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 6, 6–9 pm
The Nature of Inquiry, Part Two will be shown in June 2008.

“The project will span an eleven-month period. Nature of Inquiry, Part One, the September exhibit at The Loft Gallery, includes one piece from each artist. The artists chose the works to characterize the inquiry they will be pursuing through their art making for the next nine months. Members of the group will exhibit the results of their inquiries in Nature of Inquiry, Part Two, at The Loft Gallery for two months beginning in July, 2008.

For some artists, this process will be a continuation of a lifetime fascination with particular questions, concepts, or media; for others, the project is an opportunity to explore new materials and ideas that have been lurking in the back corners of their imaginations.”
