i(we)

Angled geese beneath
The basilica
Bank and curl
As one
Enplaned in an ancient geometry

Points connected by form
To others
Unconnected utterly
Chaotic
In particles

Beneath the basilica
Angled acute
Undeclared
In space
Linked to all eyes

Conscious of none
Un-self-conscious
Enplaned

Conscious of one
Wholly-self-conscious
As chaos
As particle

randall lives hand to mouth in our nation’s capital. He is either a middle aged white dude with no right to be angry or a humiliated teenage girl stood up at the prom.

Art can illuminate even the most elusive and difficult to comprehend ideas. Visual rules and tightly codified visual metaphors help scientists communicate complex ideas mostly amongst themselves, but they can also become barriers to new ideas and insights. Dr. Regina Valluzzi’s images are abstracted and diverged from the typical rules and symbols of scientific illustration and visualization; they provide an accessible window into the world of science for both scientists and non-scientists.
