site of the week
This weeks Sci-Art Site of the Week is Chronoscapes. I found Pery Burge's art on Flickr and absolutely loved her form of expression. She uses the science of fluid dynamics within water combined with various colors of ink to create these wonderful images. For a more complete understanding of her method check out her site.

Here she sums up her art.
I continue investigating radial spreads of ink in water. These spreads can be seen in both artistic and scientific terms. New photographic equipment has enabled me to examine these forms more closely, and the use of different inks within one spread enables me to see its different aspects more clearly. Descriptions of how various inks behave when used together, the types of polyhedral shapes that may result, inner structures, and the effects of relatively high speeds on ink flow, are followed by a section on various ink textures - this section is both scientific and artistic. Finally I look at artistic aspects of radial spreads: creating “time-rich” images, and making visual connections between the spreads and organic life-forms and cosmic phenomena respectively.
Her art is amazing and on her site you'll find galleries featuring her art past, present, and future. Should you come across a piece you like prints are available for purchase.

Sci-Art celebrates artists, scientists, web sites and blogs that dare to feature that blurry edge where art and science become one. Each week I will be selecting a Sci-Art "Site of the Week" along with other tidbits from the world of artsy science.

If you would like to suggest a Site of the Week for me to feature please click the link and email it my way. I am also hosting a Sci-Art blog/site alliance if your interested let me know.
