View Resource Ocean Flowers: Anna Atkins’s Cyanotypes of British Algae

In the middle of the 19th century, Anna Atkins wondered how she might be able to create accurate impressions of algae specimens. She was an amateur botanist who was primarily interested in the art and science of taxonomy and scientific illustration. After a long period of experimentation, she came up with the idea of using an existing blueprinting process to create the multiple copies that would...

With an undergraduate acceptance rate just shy of eight percent, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is one of the most competitive universities in the world. Admitted students, in fact, have a real knack for achieving perfect scores on the math sections of the SAT. So when MIT comes to mind, most people don’t tend to think about experimental theater or origami. Enter this website:...

View Resource TED Talks: How to go to space, without having to go to space

Angelo Vermeulen is a space researcher, a biologist, and an artist. He was also crew commander of a NASA-funded Mars simulation, in which six crew members spent four months locked away together in a dome in the crater of the Mauna Loa volcano on Hawaii. The crew was conducting a food study, but the experiment gave Vermeulen other ideas. He started encouraging artists from around the world to build...

The brainchild of writer, critic, and curator Regine Debatty, We Make Money Not Art is an edgy, colorful, impish take on the intersection of art, science, technology, and social issues.
