Here I am on Easter Sunday – photographed by my theatrical friend who finds my way of presenting science ‘engaging’.
With this engagement in mind, I produced:-
- 18 slides with voice recording;
- 5 laminated pages for a 30-second pitch to IBM, Fujitsu, Microsoft and Oracle at Google Campus, organised by techUK and
- a longer video that will be uploaded to our Smart Knowledge Space channel.
Neither artists nor scientists put Copyright notices on their work during the Renaissance in Europe.
To the contrary, the Medicis were financially so successful as bankers that art and humanism could flourish.
May our ‘digital renaissance‘ contribute to unlearning that time is supposedly money and that humanistic ideals can facilitate the coming together of art, science and digital technologies!
I am reminded of Margaret Wertheim’s book Pythagoras’ Trousers where she describes the gender war in the context of history and physics as origin of the ‘monopoly on defining god’.
