Incredible Art Made by Projecting Light onto a Polyhedron Sculpture

While it may be accurate to describe New York Artist Dev Harlan’s art as the projection of changing light patterns onto a polyhedron structure, such a description doesn’t do justice to the beauty created by Mr. Harlan.  Someone was paying attention in his geometry class…

Richard Feynman – Ode on a Flower

Richard Feynman was one of the great physicists of the 20th century, and an incredible teacher.  He won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics.

I learned about Feynman in the 1980s when I was studying physics, and spent many a night watching films of his famous lectures at Caltech.  To this day, he has inspired me to persevere in my love for science and math, while appreciating that science and math do not derogate the arts and humanities.  To the contrary, math and science only add to the beauty, mystery, and appreciation of the world – art and science are complementary.

This short video says it all: YouTube – Richard Feynman – Ode on a Flower.
