  1. I misinterpreted the title of this post, but am going to point readers to the Sci-Art section on sciscoop.com nevertheless, there you will find some great space-age collages, fractal landscapes and quasinatural motifs. I’m looking forward to the first submission from a molecular architect, so if you’ve created some stunning 3D chemical structures please check out the site and post your sci-art…

  2. Rudy Baum’s editorial/review of Bill Green’s book, “Water, Ice and Stone” is commendable on two counts:
    * The quotations by which readers are introduce to the author seem well forged, combining science and the classic art of English usage. They are both gripping and graceful.
    * Secondly, Baum emphasizes the historic need of accommodating art in/with science. As he has referred to C. P. Snow in the past, Baum returns his readers to thoughts that unite rather than divide the academy. What Plato established in his first academy was a balance that may now be eluding contemporary academicians. Being clear about what we know, what we believe we know and what we perceive (epistemology) is important to both science and the arts.
    And if there was ever a time when transparent human communication is more vitally needed, we agree, it must be today.
