Shadowland – Brilliant!


The design and choreography from Pilobolus is brilliant. As a designer I take my hat off to this level of design in a stage show.

Genetic transistors – Computers in our cells?


This sort of science is really cool and perhaps a little scary.
Links to articles about genetic transistors capable of making logic computations inside cells. Perhaps instead of merging with machines in the future we’ll all carry around PCs in our cells!

Stanford researchers create genetic transistors

Biological transistor enables computing within living cells

An example of Pareidolia


Pareidolia is a type of illusion or misperception involving a vague or obscure stimulus being perceived as something clear and distinct and I love it.

If used carefully it can be a very powerful design device to catch people’s attention.

Above is an example of how the human brain can create a meaningful pattern (a face) where there really is none.
