I found some cool articles in National Geographic
lately and thought the artiwu community would benefit from seeing them.

An all-around good issue the the August 1999 one, especially the story on
writing. The author touches on all chapters of writing's history, and as
always, the future is mind-boggling: "Readers may someday use tree-saving
electronic paper being developed by Xerox. Sheets are filled with
bicolored microscopic balls: one hemisphere with a positive charge, the
other with a negative charge. Voltage flips the balls, creating text pages
that can be reprogrammed at will." WHEW!! Later they say that a novel can
be Huck Finn with one charge and literally with the flip of a switch
transform to Moby Dick--all on the same paper!

The July 1999 issue has a really good article on color. Some of our
artist's colors have a weird past: there used to be a "mummy" color which
was a brown made by grinding the remains of Egyptian mummies; Indian
yellow was made from soil soaked with urine from cows fed on mango
leaves. There are tons more interesting revelations in the rest of the
article. READ THEM!

Laura's paintings were up Sept. 10 - Oct. 8. It was up in the show "Reflections" at the Woman Made Gallery at 1900 S. Prairie Ave. in Chicago.

Congratulations to Laura. Her participation in this show was mentioned in the Chicago Artists' Coalition Newspaper--October 1999 edition.

The IWU Career Center has some links you may be interested in for graduate school options.

A menu will pop up in the left, click on:
Web sites
Graduate School Options

I haven't really looked at these sites in depth, so anyone can check it out and write back to artiwu what you think of these sites.

Please Distribute.......

a symposium produced by Art and Science Collaborations, Inc.

November 13-14, 1999
(Saturday - Sunday)
The Great Hall, Cooper Union
New York, NY
9:00 AM - 6:15 PM

Have you ever wanted to collaborate with a geo-physicist on an underwater
environmental art project, a profile-ethicist on a Broadway play of
socio-political import, have the opportunity to meet people like an Emmy
Award-winning science producer of shows like NOVA, hear about the
challenges and triumphs of the new paradigm of artist-scientist
collaborations, learn about the development of a unique art-sci curriculum
for model educational programs, or be there as directors of new
multi-disciplinary research programs at universities "search" for new
talent for their teams?

The mission of ARTSCI'99 is to create a formal vehicle that will nurture
art-science collaborations for the next century. Models of "modern-day
Leonardos", the new paradigm of *artist scientist research teams*, panels
on timely issues, and small group Break-Out Sessions posing provocative
questions will be presented. Keynotes are by: Dr. Laurence Smaje, the
Director of the "Sci-Art" progam of the Wellcome Trust (London), one of the
few institutions commissioning such collaborations,
and Dr. France Cordova, the first woman to hold the position of Chief
Scientist at NASA, and now is the Vice Chancellor for Research at the
University of California at Santa Barbara... and mastermind of their
"Research Across Disciplines" Program.
