Proposed session for ScienceOnline2011

My proposal so far for a session at ScienceOnline2011:

Science-Art – The burgeoning fields of niche artwork aimed at scientific disciplines.
  • Is science-inspired art a new zeitgeist, or just cyclical?
  • An overview of science's influence in art history, and how the internet changes its influence.
  • What makes something "science art" anyway?  How does it differ from fantasy or scientific illustration?

I'd love to have a co-moderator or two on this.

At this time I'm waiting with baited breath about what will happen with the unconference's registration fees.  I understand completely they are necessary.  I'm still trying to figure out a way to afford to go if they are the case.

Perhaps my Etsy launch later this week will help generate the funds for me to attend.

In any case, I'll certainly keep blogging more about science-art and the topics above.
For now, take a look at these posts:
