Oh no. It’s the most contentious time of the year for geo-folk. I usually stay out of it, but some of these minerals are going to make me stan hard.

Lineup below. Hashtag to Follow or Mute is #MinCup2018
Olivine is the defending champion. Here’s why it’s badass from my Ode to Olivibe last #MinCup:

I thought it would be fun to just thread a bit about a particular piece - today "Transition to Chaos" #sciart #thermodynamics #order #klee #abstract

It's in my online portfolio here: nerdypainter.com/portfolio/tran…
"Transition to Chaos" is part of my "music and Machinery" group of paintings, which started from some experiments with geometric "mechanical" patterns of warmer, cooler, darker, and lighter shapes - while at MIT . The early ones looked more like "gridlock", but in pencil
Here's a link for prints of Gridlock. The original is currently leased (if that's of interest, talk to abby "at" turningart "dot" com)

and a detail that really evokes those earlier pencil drawings (I'll try to find one)

Welcome to #twitterstorians101

This online workshop for #ozha2018 will be running throughout the day, if it doesn't interest you feel free to mute the hashtag. 😃
If it does, fit yourself into that lecture seat with the wobbly table thing that is just a bit too small, pull out your notebooks and let's begin.

I'll begin by introducing myself; I'm one half of this workshop's facilitation after all.

My name is Will Scates Frances and I joined twitter in 2011. I am a PhD candidate at ANU, in my last year. I've written the equivalent of 62+ history theses on here.

Well-illustrated, high-detail, labeled image/diagrams of tick internal anatomy are few and far between. I know the good ones, but still can't figure out some parts and I stare at ticks a lot. We need better/updated #sciart #tickanatomy images.
For instance, while this image of the Gene's organ (from Biology of Ticks) is great once you know what to look for, the first time you see it, it's way more dramatic. Fastforward video to follow.
This has been sped up 8x, but I'm trying to figure out how to turn the annotated keynote presentation into a quicktime movie. So far, the animations aren't converting properly. The clear, fingerlike projections are the Gene's organ, while the ovoid objects are the eggs.
