Ah…the internet is a wondrous place. A fellow blogger ‘liked’ my post which of course means that I check out their site.
When I did, I discovered another site called the reanimation library. This place digitizers old and out of print books which are visually rich in design. This is like manna from heaven.
Now I can hang my digital-age abstractions on (not-s0) old world illustrations.
Todays post is a perfect example. I joined a mathematical curved shape puzzle from here to scanned and manipulated images of texture. The texture images were found whilst peering down a microscope when I was a scientist ‘plying my trade”. My visual/artistic brain (then) was not repressed by my scientific rational brain.
Actually there is no clash. Scientific enterprise and art are equally creative.
Pity they both don’t pay much.
