Forest Ambassadors with Leonardo@Djerassi

On a winter's morning in Lovett Bay, NSW, I find myself preparing my suitcase for the life-changing journey to Leonardo@Djerassi's unforgettable residency. A rush of thoughts, emotions, and memories floods my mind, and the weight of anticipation hangs in the air. Questions about what to pack, what essentials I might need, and what I would truly miss occupy my thoughts, leaving me yearning for a magician's hat.

Preparing for Leonardo@Djerassi

I'm sitting in the Bowes Art Library at Stanford University, between my two scheduled office hours for my course Science, Technology, Art on scientific approaches to the study of fine art paintings and drawings.  My students are a bit anxious as they have another homework, their final project papers, and the final coming up in quick succession.  Nevertheless, they seem to be learning a great deal.

Recognition of Leonardo’s Outstanding Peer Reviewers

As a result of more than 50 years of publishing work on the cutting edge, Leonardo has become the leading international peer-reviewed journal on the use of contemporary science and technology in the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and influence of the arts, design and humanities on science and technology.

World of Creativity

Republic of Imagination. That is what Iranian American writer, Azar Nafisi, calls the land of belonging for those that don't belong anywhere but belong everywhere. As she puts it, it is a place that is intensely personal but shared globally.  


The Republic of Imagination. Sublime.  


Orbituary for Peter Weibel, by Jürgen Claus

It is said: The birth of a human being is embedded in cosmological determinations. The born is predetermined by genes. By whatever - the German poet Gottfried Benn blamed this on the remotely determined You Must in a much-quoted poem: “Just two things remain / emptiness and your cursed self, branded like Cain.”[1] Peter wanted "the marked by destiny". Born into an insane war, which in the spring of 1944 also raged in his native city of Odessa.
