Nerd Central

When I was in high school, I opted to attend one of the first magnet schools. I enrolled in the science curriculum because at the time I planned to pursue a career in medicine. That didn't pan out. But I'm still fascinated by science and the natural world. This video is wonderfully hypnotic and explains momentum and inertia more enjoyably than any boring textbook.

After reading this article on how viewing art affects the brain, I resolved to consume more art this year. I caught the Matisse exhibit at our local museum, which was beyond cool (not the least of which was due to a surprise exhibit by Renee Cox). But once every now and then was not enough. So I added the DailyArt app to my phone, which I highly recommend. I've been enjoying the heck out of it. One of the delights I discovered in a roundabout way through the app was this article about how a photographer recreated some of Gustav Klimt's paintings using real, live humans. Enjoy!

 


I really wanted to see this in person when we were down in Florida last week, but wasn't able to make it happen. Next time!

 

 


I am obsessed with this video. I have no idea how much it costs. But I can imagine myself being more intrigued by the process than by the actual results 🙂
