Everything You Wanted to Know … Kinda

Bora Zivkovic has an interview with me up at The Network Central. You’ll surely want to head over there and give it a read—it’s short and you’ll learn about my fishing adventure involving a striped bass at least 2/3rds my size.

Mathematics, Live: A Conversation with Laura DeMarco and Amie Wilkinson

"Concealed within his fortress, the lord of Mordor sees all. His gaze pierces cloud, shadow, earth, and flesh. You know of what I speak, Gandalf: a great Eye, lidless, wreathed in flame."

This year I’ve been co-writing “Mathematics, Live,” an interview series for the Association for Women in Mathematics newsletter. In my interviews I’m “listening in” on conversations between pairs of female mathematicians. The first interview appeared in the May/June issue of the newsletter (password required). In it, I talked with mathematicians Laura DeMarco of the University [...]

Back in February, we showcased some of science-artist Willy Chyr‘s stunning Neuroplastic Dreams. When I met Chyr here in Toronto those few months back, I wasn’t expecting the forthright clarity and modesty in his character that I encountered. Chyr is intelligent and fun. I’m pleased to share this interview with this vibrant talent. – - [...]

Bleed Pretty Cells: interview with Michele Banks

MultiCellMicheleBanks-sq

Public spaces like national galleries have created a perception that art can be understood and appreciated by anyone, while the fine art world itself has grown ever-more self-referential and obscure to outsiders. Here on Symbiartic, we sometimes cover artwork that’s accessible to a specific audience, rather than everyone and no one.  Artwork that speaks, evokes, and moves the [...]

Parasites and Phenotypes: the art of scientist Tommy Leung

While the discoveries in science and developments in technology continue to inspire artists and illustrators with increasing frequency in our culture, some researchers take the tools of illustrators and use them to freely explore new ideas.  Parasitologist Tommy Leung is one such scientist.  I’m really excited to present this interview with Tommy, and present some [...]
