I actually believe artists and scientists think very similarly. Complex, abstract thought? They both have that down. It’s all about where that thinking takes you after that.
Words cannot describe how much I love this post.
I hate that the two are talked about as oppositional things. Science and art are bros, to the point where the debate still rages about which preceded the other. We don’t fight, we’re not enemies, we need each other. Ask an artist what they focus on, anatomy, light, color, depth. Do you know what that really is? Biology, theories of visual perception, and physics. The number of artistic movements that were literally started because of a new scientific discovery is staggering. Hell, to gain legitimacy, early photographers did their utmost to appear to be artists, because they knew otherwise, photography would just be viewed as an illegitimate gimmick.
I cannot tell you how much I despise this idea that science and art are at oppositional ends of the spectrum. You can not have art without the tools made by science (stylus, paper, ink, paint, video, anything), and you cannot have science without the explanations granted by art (written word, illustrations, diagrams, charts, anatomical models, medical comics). I literally once had someone tell me a video game could never be art because it involved science…well guess what, so did DaVinci’s works, so did the Impressionists, so did every artist ever. Even when you break it down to pure, raw abstraction, composition is simply math.
Science is art, art is science. Stop acting like one is pure intellect and the other pure emotion. Its an absurd binary, and frankly, it does not really exist.
I especially like this as both an artist and a scientist.

Apparently, you’re only a body positivity role model if you talk about eating all the food, but don’t look like you’re eating all the food (according to our perceptions about size and caloric intake).
Had a FUN time playing on the wall yesterday! Spiderman’s got nothing on me, lol.
Haven’t felt confident getting on the wall since my neck injury and was very slow adding arm/back/shoulder training when I healed (that was not happening again, lol). But I declare myself officially good to go!
It felt nice. Though, I predict having trouble getting dressed from til Saturday, lol. Played hard. :)
If you’re fairly advanced/comfortable, the wall can be an awesome at home tool. I usually wear socks (no marks) and when I first started, it felt safer to have the couch pillows as crashmats. You can elevate from chairs, sofas, benches to get comfortable, and avoid it if you’re injured etc. It’s easy to get hurt if you’re not careful, overly ambitious or not comfortable. You can grab a bud to spot ya too. ;)
It’s fun to playOUT instead of workOUT! Try something new!
