Yesterday I was at the Smithsonian Natural History Museum for a free workshop to DNA barcode fish with 14 teens and scientist mentors. I also visited Q?rius, the Natural History Museum's beautiful 10,000 sq feet daylit "curiosity cabinet". I enjoyed the new mural, and a chance to meet and talk with the artist, Kyle Pierce.
Here's more about the new mural on Kyle's blog: http://blog.kylepierceillustration.com/2013/12/12/mural-for-qrius-at-the-smithsonian/
Kyle and I talked about inspiration, science, walls, art, and mural techniques.
This mural for example is made by photographs printed on to vinyl, and works indoors.
Is there a technology to do this kind of work outdoors?
As quoted on the mural:
"The question is not what you look at, but what you see." Henry Thoreau
That goes for whether you are here to barcode fish, or to create buildings and art!
