Sculpture-making is the most effective way to learn science of nature. In this lesson, the students get to explore interesting topics such as compound eyes of insect or how seeds are packed in the pods of Menarda, when they take a flat sheet of paper, repeat a simple set of rules and magically a spherical structure made up of truncated cones emerges.

In mathematics, a Voronoi diagram is a way of dividing space into a number of regions. A set of points is specified beforehand and for each seed there will be a corresponding region consisting of all points closer to that seed than to any other. The regions are called Voronoi cells. It is dual to the Delaunay triangulation. It is named after Georgy Voronoy, and is also called a Voronoi tessellation, a Voronoi decomposition, or a Dirichlet tessellation. Voronoi diagrams can be found in a large number of fields in science and technology, even in art, and they have found numerous practical and theoretical applications.
One of the studies for the upcoming exhibit. Make it yours. I am sharing all my research notes before the show reception on February 16, 4-7pm in Olbrich Botanical Gardens in Madison WI @olbrichgardens #madison #tessellation #exhibit #nature #pattern #art
Tessellations
In the studio.
Those experiences when your mind flies up the steep cliffs and flips over the summit, so it can explosively dive into the vast network of the moldy intelligence inside the mountain... #clarity #sobermagic #psycholandscape #fungi #winter #driftless
with his immaculate bib, sooty jacket,
bobs in the snow for sunflower seeds.
Caught between two needs, hunger and shelter,
he keeps coming back, even as the arctic wind... ~from a poem by Barbara Crooker #junco #stencil #painting #birds #ornis #avium #winter #tranquility
...blue bloods of forest’s fringe between earth and sky, 
meadowlark and nightingale
a wedding bell of bliss,
the mornings brings…. ~by Debbie Guzzi #meadowlark #stencil #painting #winter #sunrise #avium #ornis #birds #energy #nature #poetry
No brigadier throughout the year 
So civic as the jay. 
A neighbor and a warrior too, 
With shrill felicity...

EcoSquared Exhibit opens tonight (Jan 11) 6-9pm in @hatcharthouse. It is a wonderful group show of all pieces under $200 created on upcycled materials. For additional pieces from this series, link in bio. #exhibit #madison #upcycled #nature #photography #abstract
Teaching science with art. Trained as a physicist, Peter Krsko has developed a series of lesson plans for exploring advanced scientific concepts through playful sculpture workshops. In the photos above, the students learned a meaning of “tensegrity” and created strong structures without using any nails, screws or glue. Only wood strips and stretch wrap. The final shape of the tensegrity sculpture is defined by the length and orientation of the sticks and its structural integrity emerges from the tension of the stretch wrap. #scienceart #arteducation #scienceeducation #steam #science #art #education #workshop #steam #stem #sculpture #tensegrity #school #workshop
This little love portrait of one of my favorite places and other small photography works are now available in Hatch Art House, an amazing place full of great local art on 1248 Willy St, Madison WI. There will be an artist reception on January 11th 6-9pm. See you in @hatcharthouse
