Pintando ConCiencia on ContactoX website

¿Qué imágenes tienen los sonidos de Led Zeppelin?
Los científicos usan un lenguaje abstracto de signos para visualizar y explicar las fuerzas invisibles (los campos), relaciones y procesos que forman nuestro mundo.
Los artistas crean imágenes abstractas para transmitir y analizar significados. ¿Qué pasa cuando estos dos sistemas de representación interactúan?

En una galería de Londres (Riverside Gallery) el artista Alex Baker está pintando sonidos.
"Comenzó como una simple idea tonta. ¿Qué pasa si pongo un poco de líquido en un altavoz y lo enciendo?", señaló Baker.

Así de simple, al cubrir altavoces con pintura, Baker colecta los patrones generados por las vibraciones de diferentes sonidos, usando un diafragma sobre la fuente de sonido.
Pero no es tan simple: mucha pintura arruina la imagen porque se forman glóbulos debidos a la tensión superficial. Poca pintura no permite capturar un patrón.
Para pintar una canción entera la cosa requiere ensayo y error. "Para tener un buen dibujo tuve que escuchar 36 veces la canción" señala el artista en referencia a When the Levee Breaks, tema del álbum conocido como Led Zeppelin IV. El resultado es la imagen que encabeza este post, la gran mancha negra sobre fondo blanco.

Picturing Science - Wired Magazine, March 2011

08/02/11

When art and science collide, the Riverside Gallery in London takes the opportunity to display the resulting dissection, decay and disease in all its multi-tonal glory. The result is its latest exhibit, Picturing Science.

After whittling down a massive 650 entries submitted to the open exhibition, the final 26 will be shown at the Richmond gallery until 26 February.

Taking the symbol-filled language of science and layering it with another symbol-fuelled discipline, the artists had great scope to explore themes of medicine, astronomy, neurology and more.

Inspired by experiments to detect neutrino trails, artist Frédérique Swist depicts the subatomic particles as an immense flash of lines, light and neon.

Elsewhere Anne Ridd finds beauty in dissection with a delicate pencil etching of decomposing rodents. Just don't look too hard if you're on a lunch break. Stan A. Lenartowicz takes the humble bee as his focal point with a series of images exploring how the seasons alter the rigid and ordered mathematical structure of a beehive, while Margaret Marks' melancholic piece exposes the delicacy of childhood immunity with a colourful patchwork baby blanket's digital design depicting various viral strains.

The exhibit assuredly takes some artistic liberties with its subject matter. But the interpretations are a compelling collection of reactions to a world of information so vast and so incomparable to so many, it will surely leave visitors hungry for answers, thereby opening the community of science to a wider audience and wider debate.

Check out the gallery below for a selection of the best works on show http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/34628/1/sally-hewett-embroidery-instagram-stitches-and-needles

Picturing Science: New Scientist

06/12/10

Picturing Science, a new exhibition at the Riverside Gallery in Richmond, London, explores the colliding representations of art and science. "Although science is seemingly the logical, rational, ordered antithesis of artistic creativity, artists and scientists still share a common drive to innovate, explore, dissect and reveal," says curator Mark De Novellis. The exhibition draws on the sciences from biology to astrophysics to explore these common themes. New Scientist takes a look at some highlights. http://www.dazeddigital.com/artsandculture/article/34628/1/sally-hewett-embroidery-instagram-stitches-and-needles

Making it/Faking it: Digital Arts

Artists making it and faking it in Twickenham
Wednesday 03 Nov 2010 - 11:14

An open exhibition kicked off yesterday where modern artists are showing their takes on a range of masterpieces. Making it, Faking it will run until January 23 at the Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham. London.

The organisers say that the works question notions of ‘originality’ and ‘authenticity'. The art shown ranged from meticulous exact copies in oil to radical reworkings in different or incongruous media.

More information on the exhibition can be found on the Richmond Council Arts site.

Under the Microscope: Science Collides with Art in New Exhibition. The worlds of art and science collide in a new exhibition opening this weekend

Darwin, disease, dissection and evolution are themes at the Picturing Science art show and the artists are using tools such as mould growth, microscopes and ink to create the works

Curator Mark De Novellis said despite appearing to be polar opposites, art and science had plenty in common.

‘Although science is seemingly the logical, rational, ordered antithesis of artistic creativity, artists and scientists still share a common drive to innovate, explore, dissect and reveal,’ he added. ‘They have a unified love and awe for the world around and within them.’
