Networking Opportunity: meet Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa - a woman who deeply fell in love with science!

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." John Quincy Adams

 

Dr. Krishna Kumari Challa did her M.Sc. in Life Sciences and Ph.D. in Microbiology. Her area of research is toxins produced by Microorganisms in food and how to control them and protect food from these Microbes and toxins.  She published several peer-reviewed research papers in science. She is  a self-taught artist who specializes in Art From Science. She is also a writer, a poet, a designer, a social activist and a network creator and do several other things. She is an international science-art consultant and reviewer. She explores the relationship between Art, Literature and Science while communicating science on her network, Sci-Art Lab. She wrote more than 500 articles on various subjects   and at present writing books  on the subject. Although she painted Nature in water colours in childhood, she has been actively creating art - especially science based one - since 2006.

She communicates science through art and literature and published a research paper on science-art too.

She did one solo exhibition, “Cosmic Show of Science”, in Hyderabad, India in 2008, group shows in Hyderabad, Kolkatta, Jodhpur, Goa and Jaipur in India in 2009, and a group show in Copenhagen (Denmark, Europe) in 2010.She participated in Izmir Biennial in May 2011 ( Turkey) and in a group show in Italy along with Italian artists in the first week of March, 2011. She exhibited her works in the first international science-art conference in Moscow in April, 2012.

While science is her first love, art and literature for Dr.Challa are life itself (Somebody asked Dr. Krishna a Q after reading this: And her reply was: 'Yes, I would give my life for my love!'). She firmly believes they should represent everything associated with life. As modern day life is closely intertwined with the culture of Science and Technology, she wants science too to be represented in the world of art and literature. She thinks science and art are two sides of the same coin. Exploring this relationship between art, literature and science is a beautiful experience of a fulfilled life!

Although Dr. Challa writes stories and poems too, she mainly writes on science, science - art - literature relationships for her network.

Communicating science is her main aim and non-negotiable passion!

She is a member of more than 500 networks.

Being both a specialist and a generalist helps!

Posted on December 2, 2014 at 5:30am 1 Comment

Being both a specialist and a generalist helps!

Well, yes. I am a specialist on toxins produced by micro-organisms in food. I specialized in a particular subject. That really sounds weird. Because that doesn't make me an absolute specialist. I am a relative specialist because there are several microbes and the toxins produced by them are different. I am a myco-toxicologist, because I specialized in mycotoxins, i.e., toxins produced by fungi. And I am not a specialist on all toxins…

Are people of science dumb?

Posted on November 24, 2014 at 9:00am 1 Comment

I have read 'several' articles recently that say, " sciences should embrace art to get more creative and do out of the box thinking". 

Well, this really stumps me. Are people of science dumb? All these inventions, discoveries, thinking in new ways to understand the world and help it - observed for so many years came out of nothing? Isn't there creativity in science? Are scientists limited to their narrow boxes? Somehow I don't like this belittling science and scientists to…

How an artist helped science unintentionally

Posted on October 31, 2014 at 6:00am 0 Comments

Nikolai Peristov, a Russian artist who carves jewellery from ancient mammoth tusks, helped science unintentionally! In 2008, Peristov was looking for ivory along Siberia’s Irtysh River when he noticed a bone jutting from the riverbank. He dug it out and showed it to a police forensic scientist, who identified it as probably human.

The bone turned out to be a human left femur, and eventually made it to the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, where…

Artists damage the ecology when they do things with half knowledge

Posted on August 19, 2014 at 10:00am 1 Comment

Earlier I have written on how an artist was consuming lots of power, instead of helping with save it, with her 'enlightening' art work. You can read it here:

I said then - problems will arise if one cannot see the whole picture like the scientists…

Taking science-art to public places

Posted on June 26, 2014 at 6:30am 1 Comment

I have stressed several times the importance of taking science-based art to public places (ref 1) to make common people understand science  in a better way  making them more interested in the subject and getting benefited by it. 

Now listen to this wonderful news: Magnified is an exhibit of 46 scientific images showing cells and other scenes of life magnified by as much as 50,000 times. The exhibit is on display at Washington Dulles International Airport's Gateway Gallery…
