When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.”~ Paul Coelho

"Some Mad Hope..."
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Jane Harrison

How We See

"How we see is by continually redefining normality." Beau Lotto

As an artist who has always been interested in science, I am fascinated by the science of color and vision. As an educator,it is necessary that I comprehend the basics to share with my students. Vision and our perception of color are both complex and dynamic processes.Beau Lotto is the founder of Lottolab,an England based art and science laboratory. View Lotto's TED talk to learn more about the plasticity of our visual perception. More valuable and interesting information,presented in a very accessible manner, is available on his website.I have shared this information with my colleagues and students. Great stuff:)http://www.lottolab.org/

"There's no inherent meaning in information.It's what we do with that information that matters."~ Beau Lotto
