A Variable Life

What love embraces -beyond multifaceted gestures-
To whom persisted too variably; or whenever it may come,
Whatever it has become, the open heart
Enjoys its immediate past. Blissful presence to learn &
Know, seasonality; chased by
The young and getting
That solo only joy would enhance.

Be a happenstance, or cover yourself up.
I capture your mind as a film poem,
Exposed in experience, for I always see
How happy you will be without losing me at last.
You want me more when
I extend your company to its meaningful end.
Out of passion lower my strong knees- and come-.

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.
