Imaging and Microscopes

The beauty behind Art-Sci is how you can take various artistic directions within the field of STEM in order to express yourself or highlight/ elaborate on a specific topic or field. Because of the vast possibility and directions within Art-Sci, we see such amazing final topic ideas as proposed by our class on this site.

The Dragon, the Ox and the Monkey

Family dynamics shape the very core of our beings the second we were introduced to the Earth. The newborn recognizes the mother’s smell and is directly attached to her, the connection is further strengthened through the ritual of breastfeeding. As the mother watches her baby breast feed, she might think: Will this baby turn out to behave like me or dad or a mix of both?

Аждаја - Dragon

Being born in the year 2000 became a personality trait for me. I was born at the start of the new millennium, when conspiracy theorists predicted that humankind would perish due to computer software issues. Who would have thought? I was also born a year after NATO aggressors have bombed my village and turned my parents’ country upside down. I was also born about a year before the catastrophic events of 9/11.

Chewing: A S(t)imulation

‘Sound’, as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is the “mechanical radiant energy that is transmitted by longitudinal pressure waves in a material medium (such as air) and is the objective cause of hearing” (1).

Interwoven Connections

During the past five weeks, we have explored various areas of art and science. Instead of viewing each topic as a separate entity, I wanted to focus on their similarities and connections in my drawing.  Each little cloud provides a glimpse into what we learned during a particular week. In the middle we see a nucleus with an electron cloud surrounding the protons and neutrons in the middle.

Porous Bodies

First and foremost, I would like to thank our guest lecturers for preparing such an amazing presentation and for inspiring us to become mushroom hunters through their storytelling soundwalk. However, I don’t know if I would like to call myself a mushroom ‘hunter’; instead, I would prefer the term mushroom ‘explorer’. The essay by Ursula K.

The Need to Knead?

Bread, or хлеб (hleb) in my native tongue, with its wide range of uses, textures, and appearances is the staple food for most if not all cultures. Bread’s versatility and symbolic nature within the religious landscape have established it as a central source of carbohydrates and nutrition in everyone’s daily diet.

Choosing a random location in Soldotna, Alaska during the winter months may have proven to be a difficult task. My online ‘random location generator’ demonstrated that the algorithms which composed the online software are disconnected from reality. Random locations set in the middle of rivers, lakes, or closed national parks are impossible to venture out into due to the weather and their specific conditions.

Pencil "Lead"

What we mistakenly call pencil "lead" is actually made from a mixture of graphite, clay, and water that has been heated to a very high temperature. As I was drawing this, I wanted to showcase the two significant materials that make up pencil "lead": graphite and clay. The pencil "lead" extends from the pencil and is divided into two sides. One side has a block of clay; whereas, the other side has graphene, which is a single layer of graphite.
