Of Painting and Pencillin - Studio 360

Kristin and I find ourselves in fine company this weekend in a radio piece that features our art-making process alongside that of Alexander Flemming. Who knew he made paintings with bacteria too?! Now, if only we could stumble upon a world health solution while we are noodling with our drawings... (thankfully Kristin is working on that in more traditional ways).

Click through to Studio 360 here, where you can hear the piece, or go here to see the whole piece bundled with a video where you can watch me botch a print, and see a little slide show of our last working session.  Our goal was to translate some of the "lab" science into the "home" lab, so i can work a bit more independently and bother fewer busy scientists.

Huge thanks go to Lindsay Patterson, the intrepid producer who sought us out,  to the folks at Studio 360, and to our friend Katayoun Chamanay for loaning us some key supplies.

Leave us a comment and let us know what you think of the story.
