A print of my painting A Parable of A Physicist And Twin Torsos, with text from myself and Professor Caslav Brukner of the Faculty of Physics at the University of Vienna, will be included in the poster session of a new workshop on quantum biology
I am contributing artwork to the workshop, “Hitting the Target?” - How New Capabilities Are Shaping Contemporary International Intervention in 12 July 2012 - 13 July 2012 at cii – the Centre for International Intervention, School of Politics, University of Surrey in the UK. There
I am very interested in this whole debate around transhumanism. Aljazeera's The Stream ran a brief introductory overview which makes a lot of my previous links more accessible, although they have placed them all within this whole sphere of transhumanism (watch the video below). I'm not
So much is happening in the world that seems to tilt us towards the edge of something extraordinary. We don't need to be scientists to watch and observe, and also remember that these activities will affect us. I'm sure the concept escapes scientists at times. I'm sort of fond
I have written about the solar flare activity as part of the narrative of my new paintings. Below is the information release from NASA about 2 large solar flares that will hit Earth on the morning of 8 March (US time). Below is
The sub-text question in this painting is: "Does Petraeus dream of electric sheep?". But for every intelligent being, it is still, "What is this thing called love?"
The two recognizable figures are David H Petraeus and Jennifer Miro (of The Nuns). Obviously the head of the CIA doesn't collaborate in artistic explorations
I noted this new coronal mass ejection as part of what will become a normal and disruptive occurance over the next 11 years. I have featured this in my painting The Emaculate Contraptio n because I think they will have an enormous affect on our environment.
I'm always grateful to Edge for bringing up things the mainstream media don't focus on. This is an important post from Edge.org, Code Is Law , introduced by influential German journalist and essayist Frank Schirrmacher [11.7.11]. It's a bit hard to
The Sun, the helios , its affect on Earth is a particular area of study called heliophysics . And NASA have quite a bit of this research on it's education websites. Solar flares have become an area of my interest lately. It is
OK, so I never knew Einstein, but I can't imagine he would object to being challenged. He'd probably relish it. As Don Howard, a lecturer on Einstein at Notre Dame University said on NPR, "this is the glory of science" (Experiments are allowed, even encouraged, to challenge
I often use the term 'gateway image"to describe a painting which is a bridge between one series and the next. Most of the time it is not that clean, because you travel a road and the landscape changes along the way. So there are not really any breaks
In 1966, about 9 months before I entered the world , TIME magazine ran a cover story "Is God Dead?". It's still the question. By today's standards it seems naïve, given the pluralism of gods and beliefs. But in the
I've updated this entry because people thought I was dumping the broader themes (I'm not) but some paintings are smaller chapters. Only during an exhibition do I really understand how it fits in. This one is less Judy and more dark matter, God and Pentagon's black budget. It's a
The next few months the work is in transition as I start a new series. It's going to be really vague and really weired (what's new you say). The working title is Scribes of Divinity.
Here is one of the new canvases. In this image (which
[image: Juan Antonio de Frías y Escalante. Inmaculada Concepción] I had to share this because it is so fascinating and strange and I'm using the ideas in my paintings.
I discovered the concept of the digital offspring of researchers at Michigan State University who "live" in a computer and
My new show, We'll Always Have Paris - bent tales from the sub-atomic is now open at Keith+Lottie Gallery, from January 17 to February 01, 2008. This is a very different show for me, stylistically I've drawn on my roots in design and merged my
This is my 16 canvas (20x20cm each) painting of Diana's alternative realities. called Schrodinger's Requiem. In this narrative, Diana lives, as per the many worlds theory of quantum physics. I did sell this painting, and wish I could have kept it,

WORK IN PROGRESS (quantum art series)
In my 2006 exhibition Sedition and Other Bedtime Stories I began looking at the quantum world when I was seeking new ways of seeing old problems. This made me aware of the way that stories influence our knowledge. As I
