  • This is Your Brain on Yarn

    Posted by Shannon Love on May 20th, 2009 (All posts by )

    A couple of interesting artists.

    Scientifically correct depictions of neurological subjects done in yarn and fabric. 

    An artist who works in pigeon feathers

    I think it important to remember that even though the majority of art out there today is just random noise, there are some people doing thoughtful stuff.

      Your attribution of ‘Random Noise’ is correct, but I feel you are incorrect in your statement that some people are doing ‘thoughtful stuff’ out there!

      My view, which is perhaps a tad more brutal can best be seen within the link as given !

      Actually, the ‘scientification’ of art has been a trend for some time. I mean, artists using images from medical and other science as a basis for the art; electron microscopic images, DNA arrays, pictures of space and stuff like that. I’m not sure what to think of it – in general, it’s got a kind of ‘oh, cool’ factor, but I don’t find a lot of it beautiful.

      M,: again, I agree with you.
      Same trend exist in using technical architectural visual representation as means for contemporary artistic expression. Usually only people who’re not in the profession find it “cool”.
      Her’s one example.
