"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) regina-valluzzi.pixels.com/featured/gridl…
and a detail that really evokes those earlier pencil drawings (I'll try to find one)
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.
