Revisiting Science for Artists

Last summer, I started a blog called Science for Artists. It’s a blog for my favorite excerpts and syntheses of my summer reading. Today, I found a link to this article on my Twitter, NPR’s article ”When Art Meets Science, You’ll Get The Picture” by Nancy Shute. It resurrected feelings I feel about art, science and design and how communication is sometimes obscured when its form becomes too beautiful. Here’s my blogged response.

I spent some time looking at my blog. This website that I hadn’t updated in six months. I remembered how excited and inspired I was last summer, reading intense texts about the beauty of nature and science. It seems like a different life. Very different from my current one of the office, designing things for mobile and updating my Facebook. I am grateful for my research. When revisited Science for Artists blog, I added more sharing buttons. Some that didn’t exist a year ago. I changed the theme so it would be responsive (that it would change its format slightly to accommodate smaller screen sizes).  I pinned, tweeted, dugg, reddited and facebooked one of the blog posts. It’s fun seeing the numbers of visits rise just from clicking the share buttons on one post. I think there is probably an interesting graph that describes what would happen if I “shared” varying amounts. At what point would my audience be inundated with links to the same blog in a short amount of time?

In WordPress, there’s an admin section called Appearance. Within that menu there’s a place to upload images for iPad features. I made a cover logo and launch screen image. I love the idea that someone is tucked snugly under a blanket on his couch, with his iPad, reading my favorite book excerpts.

So, yes. Please check it out. And I am currently looking for more people to post on the site with me. One of the things I keep reading about when I read about blogging is that there are many benefits from multiple users posting to one blog. So, if the “magical junction between science and art” elicits a response from you, send me a message at katarina@countissarts.com

    There arre men’s bracelets with the Greek Key design, other etched and complexly cut designs such as skulls, scorpions,
    even the Christian cross to name a few. Some are gently curved and others
    are curved into the shape of a U. With so many natural sources out there that are
    incorporated into body jewelry makes these organic ranges the
    most interesting on the market yet.

    The trend’s pickiing up with men, as they find it masculine in comparison to old
    or any other metal.

    The biocompatibility of this material makes iit ideally
    suited for thkse getting pierced for the first time.
    You can wear these ornaqments on your navel button, nose, lips, and ears aand on any
    other body part byy piercing your skin. The major reason apart fom the cost factor is that
    it’s non allergic and easy to replace.
