La Plante Show – Jesse Morris Art

La Plante, the CAMBAM(Center for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine) Student Chapter and the Eastern Bloc Lab present an all day art show / data party / interactive object space, followed by a night of thoughtful listening, cacophonic casseroles and riotous amoeboid dancing!
—-The statement of intention:—-
In the contemporary sciences, data visualization and graphing systems play an increasingly vital role in interdisciplinary work between mathematics, life sciences, and physics. The visual results are often paradoxical, humorous, or aesthetically compelling – botched graphs, incomplete code behaving strangely, large network diagrams and so forth. While not necessarily “correct” or relevant to scientific research, these images facilitate a distinct aesthetic that opens up a unique mental space of dreaming in code, propagating arrays, quantizing qualitative experience, and extreme pattern recognition. We wish to harness this creative energy in order to comment upon the interface between science & the public // data & the brain that parses it // nature & how we quantify it!

I don’t follow many other blogs. I follow three with regularity. If you have some time to waste, have a peek at these three.
Trackosaurus Rex. An immense blog centered around bicycle and bicycle related topics jam packed with photos and videos. If you can appreciate the art of the bike then you can appreciate this.
The Wooster Collective. This blog focuses on street art around the world.
Fecal Face. A San Francisco based art blog featuring street art, illustration, music, openings, and interviews. They have a weekly drawing contest based upon a theme which I will begin to enter more often. Check out my entry and vote for #7 here.
These blogs are a few out there that caught my attention so far.
On March 22, 2012, some 200,000 students rallied together to protest the tuition fee increases in Montreal, Quebec.
The peaceful march took place at 1pm and was greeted with enthusiasm by the local population. All were in good spirits. People cheered from the sidewalks with support for the students and waved red flags from balconies above. Many wore red to symbolize debt. Some children seen painting red squares in their windows were greeting by the students with the chant, “C’est pour vous!” or, “It’s for you!”
Other cries of protest included:
“Crions! Plus fort! Pour que personne ne nous ignore!” / “Yell! Louder! So no one can ignore us!”
“On veut étudier! On veut pas s’endetter!” / “We want to study! We don’t want to be in debt!”
The province of Quebec plans on doubling tuition fees over the next five years to $3800. The main argument put forth in favor of raising tuition is that it will provide better education for students. One does not necessarily equal the other. There are too many countries in the world to list here that provide quality free education. If you are curious about which countries provide it, there is a short list here.
Forcing those who cannot pay the extra cost for their education is wrong. Québec Premier Jean Charest will hopefully yield to the population and make a rare welcomed move in his poor political career. Jean Charest, along with Minister of Education Line Beauchamp, may end up cutting those who cannot afford the extra cash out of the system.
But that’s the point isn’t it? Keep a large group of uninformed and uneducated people?
Of course it is, because the educated are dangerous to those in positions of power.
