On the sidewalk just outside the Miami Projects art fair, I could immediately recognize a colorful painting by Julie Oppermann, as it pulsed waves of color through the window from the Mark Moore booth.

Michelle Anderst is a Seattle-based fine artist whose paintings of biological structures serve as both works of art as well as aesthetic statements on ecological consciousness in the modern world. Through her use of vibrant colors and organic subject matter, such as bone, stem, and vein, Anderst creates unique microcosms of the greater natural world, illustrating the interdependence of all living things with one another, no matter how seemingly small or distantly related.

Based in Tucson, Arizona, Daniel Martin Diaz is a fine artist with an insatiable curiosity to explore the mysteries of life and science through creative production. In his forthcoming collection of art and essays, "Soul of Science," Diaz tackles the elusive properties of consciousness and time through a personal visual language that draws inspiration from the old Flemish masters as well as from modern scientific theories. Intespersed among Diaz's exquisitely rendered pieces are several illuminating writings contributed by mathematicians, physicists, and art historians, each examining the same universal questions from their unique academic and individual perspectives.

We thought we would post this video by Tom Stokes of Madlib, aka Quasimoto, aka Beat Konducta, aka DJ Lord Such, aka.... at the Medicine Show in London!
