I’m Sure This Violates Leviticus Somehow

Bodies ... The Exhibition comes to Albuquerque

Once the initial wave of creepy wears off, Bodies ... The Exhibitionwell,maybe “creepy” is being too modest. The exhibit, which opened Sept. 9 at the Albuquerque Convention Center, features real human bodies in various stages of disassembly. The back of one of the specimens has been filleted to show the spine and muscles. A person with a constitution weaker than mine may regard “creepy” as being the understatement of the year.

Performance Review

The Play With Two Brains (Steve Martin Reference)

The Aux Dog Theatre puts on Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Art and science are usually viewed as separate, walled-off worlds.

It’s been said that art, while influenced by philosophy and strategy, maintains steadfast ground not in the head, but in the muse-directed heart and gut.

It also goes that science lives in the brain, plodding through cerebral pathways to carve out theories and observe minute truths.

The problem with this stereotype is that it just isn’t true. Art and science lease equal space in the head and heart, and they influence each other as much as they are each inspired by beauty and logic.
