Writing this blog has been a bittersweet experience. I have had a wonderful time being part of the Bridge program. It has helped me to become a better scientist as well as a better person. Jo Yarrington has been an amazing partner, her insight has been invaluable. Even though our residence is over, Jo and I will continue to collaborate. In the future, we plan to conduct a Sci-Art exhibition at Kettering University.
This program has catalyzed the incorporation of art in my classes. I would like to thank Julia Buntaine Hoel, Kate Schwarting from the SciArt center, as well as Dean Laura Vosejpka for all of their support and help during this residence.
Montse and I are continuing to plan for her visit to my university now scheduled for early February, my visit to her university first as preparation in later February then in May to work with her students and our exhibition. She is in Mexico and I am back in Paris so it has become a truly international virtual Residency. We have been discussing whether to start an early progressive installation in her university gallery and add materials as we develop work up to and including the workshop. I will have another work in Paris to finish up some of the art and science combined exhibitions that had been of interest earlier and that I didn’t have time to attend.
I look forward to writing a summary of our collaboration in January. It certainly has been productive one so far and I am excited to see what might develop when we work together with her students.
