Seeing Antlers, Feeling Dendrites


As of today, SEED has a new look and a new occasional writer. . . me! ;)

See my little essay on Christopher Reiger's Synesthesia #1 here, on the culture page. Then go explore the rest of the site. . . the new design is pretty sweet. They even have a SCIART tag for pieces like mine.

If you read my February piece for the SEED website on art, science, and synesthesia, you'll remember Christopher Reiger's intriguingly ambiguous painting Synesthesia #1. I'm very pleased to report that it is now available as a limited edition print. I'd also like to call attention to Christopher's…
Everything is ephemeral - including bioephemera. As of today, May 31, I'm going on hiatus for at least this summer - and probably longer. While I've met many wonderful fellow bloggers and faithful readers through the blog, keeping BioE going has become a significant investment of time that I just…

Congratulations to you and Hooray for me! I had let my subscription run out through disorganization and neglect last year and just renewed. I'm so excited. :)

Congrats! Art is often only as good as what can be brought to it and you bring an enlightening insight to that piece. At first glance, I thought those were tree roots!
