Proud to say that my long time dedication to the Guild of Natural Science Illustrators, recently in the role of Membership Director, has mutated to a different position. I’m still on the executive board, now as the Outreach Director, responsible for all the communications and newsletters. Lots of ideas to put to practice starting in the fall to make the GNSI an even more special group of talented and friendly artists.
Check out the social media coverage of the 2016 conference that took place in Santa Cruz CA (links below). Don’t miss the awesome time lapse video of the collaborative painting of a chalk mural and the three live broadcast videos from plenary speakers extraordinaire, John Muir Laws, David Goodsell and Terryl Whitlatch.
Women in Science is a photography exhibit at the Pavilion of Knowledge in Lisbon, portraying and honoring over one hundred Portuguese scientists. It is truly an honor to be included in such a recognized group of accomplished women!
Beautiful website by the online newspaper Observador on the same topic too.
At the International Women’s Day the accompanying catalogue to the exhibit was presented along with the exhibit digital kiosk.
Our article “Skin & bones: an artistic repair of a science exhibition by a mobile app” has been published in the journal MIDAS, in a special edition dedicated to science and art. In the article we discuss the importance of artistic creativity in the production of several aspects of the mobile app Skin & Bones. The article is available online here.
I am so proud to say that the mobile project Skin & Bones made it to the top ten selection of the Vizzies Interactive category. Vizzies are the awards of the annual visualization challenge promoted by the National Science Foundation, and one of the most important recognitions in the scientific visualization field.
The week before traveling to a conference where I’ll be giving a presentation is always a rush! Heading to Minneapolis in 8 days and couldn’t be more excited about the program and meeting the other attendees and presenters. And the best of all, I was honored to be given one of the few scholarships that the MCN Scholarship Committee hands out every year! It is an extremely generous support and facilitates the interaction with many other museum professionals. Looking forward to this trip.
The website Sciencemotionology that specializes in scientific animation invited me for a nice interview that is now available online and is also featuring Skin & Bones. Thank you Tiago Duarte, your work at Sciencemotionology is great in promoting the work of illustrators and animators!
Our proposal to present Skin & Bones at the famous SXSW Interactive festival that takes place every year in Austin is now up for public voting. See the video above that we recorded to include in the proposal.Video
We were at the studios of the Interface Media Group, to speak about the development of Skin & Bones and the ongoing research. We were invited by the Women in Film and Video (WIFV), a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the professional development and achievement for professionals working in all areas of screen-based and related disciplines; the Roundtable is particularly focused on media production for education.
Packing and reviewing all the details to depart to this year’s GNSI conference, at the Arcadia University in Glenside, PA. One week of catching up with old friends and colleagues, meeting new ones, and contributing to the GNSI in the role of Membership Director.
