Notes from the Science-Art Session

No direct quote for this meme.


Summaries of comments made during the science art session by artists and audience members:

  • Hawks – interested in reconstruction, detailed realism, Neanderthal terminator, there is a tradition in anthropology of illustrating, Neanderthal are reconstructed to look doomed and confused, like it when illustrators and artists bring humanity into them, humor, Kenise Brothers give smiles to them, pose them, which isn’t scientific because we don’t know these things, but also more scientific because it isn’t so clinical
  • Orr – geometric, abstract illustrations of birds
  • Links ot other artists on the wiki page: Carl Buell, etc
  • Radiohead/Nine Inch Nails Model: put a lot free stuff online in hopes of eventually being hired to do something custom, people expect images for free
  • Criticism of Mellow's Darwin painting: the steps were too linear, it should have been a bush growing out of his head
  • – fantasy images of brachiosaurs, not scientifically accurate, but memorable. Brian Ang.
  • My Favorite Anthropology Sculpture of Homo Erectus at the Hall of Human Origins - post a link to this image in the wiki.
  • The monkey rising to become man iconic image is really wrong and hurts evolution’s image outside of the field. Mitochondria is another example, in cells they are not blobs, but are networked.
