Watching Europa

I'm pretty busy with another project at the moment but staying in touch with Culture at Work via the newsletter. Fiona Davies's work with silk fibre and red dye is amazing, as was the interesting presentation she made with Dr Peter Domachuk, whose work with silk biomedical implants is definitely something to watch in the future.

In the meantime, I can't resist sharing a new combination of art and science with you. Last year I discovered the ethereally haunting music of Peter Miller's Perpetual Ocean project, including a series of six one-hour compositions called Strangeness + Charm.

Peter has just started up a new project called Scribbletronics, and his first artwork in progress is the amazing Watching Europa. It's an imaginary exploration of the possibility of life in the oceans on Saturn's water-covered moon. Here's a thousand words to describe it:

Wow! (Okay, a thousand and one words.)
