An increasing number of artists are choosing science as their themes. That is okay. But if it becomes an obsession & reaches ridiculous proportions? Here is an example:
A curator of an exhibition in New york aims to spark a debate over the idea that plastic surgery is ART! He gives the example of rhinoplasty, the surgery of nose reconstruction, where he thinks artistic skill & certain amount of creativity is necessary to give people perfect noses! The exhibition, titled "I AM… Continue
With the dismantling of community mental health system and the erosion of personal support networks new alternatives must be devised. Currently I am working cf House of Cards series with that forming a recurring imagery/concept to be confronted. In contrast to the typical approach of assuming only bureaucratic systems can explore and solve these challenges, Cultural Fusion is… Continue
The Australian performance artist known as Stelarc wants to transform his body into a portal on the internet. The visitors to Exit Art, a gallery in Midtown Manhattan, are being treated to a video of Stelarc's left arm being cut up like a rare tenderloin to implant a Bluetooth-enabled artificial ear. Stelarc's video is one of more grisly highlights of "Corpus Extremus (LIFE+)" , an exhibit about the wonders & horrors of " Post Natural History" & the ways in which technology is blurring… Continue
Lately I felt many many negative attacks which i could send back as ping pong with the help of love and light.
The more we spread love the more darkness will try to cover us
The more light we spread, the more dark areas felt attacked.
And I have faced several of them but I was never be afraid
God made both designs
good and bad
light and darkness
good and bad
and we hold the key ... and we have the light ...May you be embraced by… Continue

Paola Antonelli of MOMA
AT SOME POINT DURING THE SHOW, VL STARTED GROWING TOO FAST. IT WAS TIME TO STOP IT. BUT DID THAT MEAN KILLING IT?
Paola Antonelli is the senior curator of design and architecture at New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and writes the DESIGN column on the interface of science and design.
I only want to point out that in societies such as ours, the intrinsic commodity is really "need" .the need of artists to show work, the gallerists to have a product that is sellable or interestng. Members of the public, to own something beautiful, or chic, or something that will grow in value. A good gallerist has to be a good salesman/woman. Many gallerists are not good in sales. Many gallerists wind up getting artists, whose need is greater than others , to foot the bills and pay…Continue
Lab is a place where great minds work. People get relaxed & enjoy too in a lab. This is where curiosity lives & the desire to find or invent something new thrives. Lab is the abode of " Never-say-die " spirit. All positive vibrations & light originating from this place lighten up the world. This is where experimentation of all kinds takes place & re-search goes on. Everything that is…
I am finishing my doctorate in Art and Art Education at Teachers College. I am writing my dissertation now. My research interest in my academic career has always been artists networks and exhibitions. My department at Teachers College is Art and Art Education.

Artists spending an inordinate amount of…Continue

Once a sculptor in a village made a beautiful idol of a goddess and thought of selling it at a good price in the city. So he loaded the idol on his donkey and started towards the city. When he was going through the village, the villagers bowed in front of the idol as it looked like a real goddess. Whichever street he crossed, a crowd would bow in front of the idol.
But a strange thing happened. The donkey, which was carrying the idol, thought that he was special and that was the reason why… Continue
Dr. Krishna Challa is an interesting doctor that puts a spin on combining the beauty of art with life science. I was fascinated to learn about the intellectual side as well as the creative side of this talented artist of science and art.…
