Mad Quickies 4.8


• “Ten of the finest examples of improvisation are on show at the Science Museum’s new climate science gallery, ranging from a giant custard-coloured remodelling of Antarctic explorer Sir Vivian Fuchs’s Sno-Cat to Longplayer, a thousand year-long piece of music started by Jem Finer on the eve of the millennium.” (via Ashley)

• Proteins, enzymes, antibodies and what else lies beneath a painting? Understand art through science!

• If you need me I’ll be here for the weekend and so will a few other Mad Art Labbers. If you can, do stop by and say hello!

  1. The “What Lies Beneath” link is interesting. I really like reading about what paints and such were used and paintings beneath paintings. There’s a book I read last year called “Color: A Natural History of the Palette” that traced where colors for art and dying come from around the world, that I like for much the same reason.

    And weird-brain-association of the week – as soon as I saw the painting used as an illustration on that story, something about the cross-section below it made the painting bring up Hopper’s “Nighthawks”. I think the cross-section played the part of the street. If that hadn’t been right up on the painting, I don’t think I’d have though of it.

  2. My brain is segueing from “What Lies Beneath” to “The Beast Below”… combined with the recent elephant art post, I am now hoping for space whale art.
