  • In my work I integrate service, research, and teaching. I serve by editing a book “Biologically-Inspired Computing for the Arts: Scientific Data through Graphics,” and chairing the D-Art Gallery for the International Conference on Information Visualization, London. I perform research work, then pass the outcomes on to my students, and thus inspire them to create computer graphic projects. I test and assess my questions and results by creating my own art on the themes I am working on. This completes the circle. I explore relations between natural, constructed, and imagined structures. My current project is about nature versus technology, city life versus rural environment, animal world versus humans. My task is to juxtapose the regularity of nature with man’s constructions, both physical and intellectual. I am working on a project about water, centered on biologically inspired computing for the arts. I explore what technological and human worlds have in common. I synthesize my previous and current experiences and art works to build my new line of research because these themes appear continuously in nature-related and art-related projects and support my background and resources while working on these projects.
