Synthesizing art from science.
My work is an exploration of the visual medium to bring science to a larger audience.
Trained in sciences, I look for the literal and the absolute. Interested in arts, I look for abstract. In my experiments, I play with a contrast of the abstract and the absolute. The balance between the two shifts across my work.
Ipsawonders is a labor of love. I hope to pique curiosity, experiment with arts as a mode of science storytelling, and exploration of science as art itself.
After finishing a Ph.D. at IISc, I forayed to science communication using visual arts. Currently, I work as a post-doctoral fellow at InStem. I work on exploring illustration as a method of science communication.
Apart from exploring visuals as a vehicle for science storytelling, I also explore how drawing science can be an exercise in meaning-making.
I have not formally trained in arts, except by practice. Ira Glass reminds all young artists that it is by creating a volume of work, we can close the gap between our work and our taste. I am on the path.
I volunteer for PhD Career Support Group, an online community of scientists across the world. I also guest illustrate and coordinate art programs for their science communication arm, Club Sciwri.
I also volunteered for Artecology, a consortium of artists, ecologists, and scientists.
What's on the table.
I am open to commissioned work, collaborations, sci-art workshops, selling artwork and science-inspired artwork.
