“Floating on inner seas” in Interalia Magazine



Water – and, more broadly, floating, fluidity, and flow – proved to be a perfect theme for bringing together many aspects of my work: from my floating colors art-making process, to the pleasure of floating free from gravity, to the fluid milieu intérieur that bathes all the cells of our bodies, to a new theory about cerebrospinal fluid as a cause of scoliosis, in “Floating on inner seas.”  

Interalia is a magazine “dedicated to the interactions between the arts, sciences and consciousness.”  The invitation to contribute to their issue on “Interconnecting Water” gave me a chance to pursue ideas I focused on in the SciArt Center’s recent “Submerged” show.  The magazine’s format allowed me to bring words and images together in a way that I hope enhances both.
