We are very excited to announce that Mad Art Lab is back!
I think we all got a bit overwhelmed with work and life and experienced a bit of blog burn-out. I know I did. Burn-out coincidentally, is now recognized by the World Health Organization as an occupational phenomenon. Guidelines on how to treat that burn-out are not yet set in stone, but my anecdotal experience tells me that taking a well-deserved break can really help. And that is what we all did.
We spent some time getting our creative juices flowing, we recharged our batteries, rebooted our systems, reconvened, and reestablished our love of art, science, geekery and pop-culture. And we have brought that refined, creative energy back here to Mad Art Lab for you to enjoy. Plus, we all just missed having a community of like-minded art-nerds to hang out with and write and make stuff for. This little blog was always a safe, happy space where we could all be creative and supportive and bond over science-art and whatever other nerdy TV shows, or scientific studies, or other shiny objects caught our attention. Without this blog, I for one, felt very much alone on internet. I’m very excited that what I wasn’t alone in, was that feeling, and that a lot of the writers and makers wanted to come back here as well. YAY!
In the following weeks you will see some old and new faces and voices here at MAL.
Our goal is to inspire you, motivate you, get you thinking and most importantly, get you excited about the amazing world and universe around you. We are an art family composed of idealistic stardust and documentable dreams. We bring notepads, frying pans, sonic screwdrivers, crayons and whatever else we can stuff in our backpacks.
We wanna make stuff. We welcome you all back to the Lab.
