It’s a gorgeous morning! ✨🌿 #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

When, I lived in DC, I often attended a great program called DASER at the National Academy of Sciences. In my time attending DASER, I felt like I had finally found a place to nerd out with people who understood me and my passion for sciart. The crowd is a great mix of the two fields and the panel discussions are always fascinating and innovative. In the USA, DASER was the only place where I found a solid dedication to symbiotic relationship between science and the humanties. I miss the program dearly, but Im hoping that I finally find my dream MA here, on the other side of the pond. Ill come back and have better questions and insights for future DASER events. . In this work, Steven Millers Law of the Jungle the artist uses xray images to convey our connections with nature through mutually common structures. In many ways, Millers work reveals the way in which natures engineering often surpasses our own. Through millions of years of trial and error, evolution designs perfect structures for survival. In the above image, you can see consecutive curves, in the bone, which coil to create curves in the body. These curves and loops help the snake eat, move, and remain very flexible. It is the ultimate expression of form and function. . . #cpnas #nas #naturesdesign #sciart #washingtondc #structure #curve #ray #silhouette #bnwphotography #bnw #artandscience #formandfunction #design #artwatchers_united #instagallery #ru_curves_18 #rebelsUnited #americanart #natureart #mydccool #arthistorynerd #contemporaryart #snake #skeleton #curves #layers #twist

Can you guess what part of the country this map depicts? 🌴🌎 Artist R. Luke DuBois analyzed data from 19 million profiles on 21 online dating sites to create A More Perfect Union (2010/2017). This alternate version of the 2010 US census reveals how inhabitants of particular cities describe themselves. #duboisdata #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

Congratulations to the @capitals on their Stanley Cup victory! 🏒 In a 2007 Washington Post interview, Caps owner Ted Leonsis said that the Albert Einstein Memorial was his favorite monument in DC. After reading the article, NAS president Ralph Cicerone invited Leonsis for a visit, and Leonsis invited Cicerone to a hockey game.

Happy #WorldOceansDay! Imagine seeing what you think is a coral reef, only to realize that there is movement within the shape and that it is actually a massive school of fish. That is what happened to photographer @waynelevinimages as he swam in Hawaii’s Kealakekua Bay on his way to photograph dolphins. The fish he encountered were akule, the Hawaiian name for big-eyed scad. In the years that followed he developed a fascination with the beauty and synchronicity of these schools of akule, and he spent a decade photographing them. This piece, Column of Akule, is in our collection. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences #waynelevin

Look closely at the façade of the NAS Building and you will see a depiction of the Egyptian god Imhotep. He has been referred to as a polymath, poet, judge, engineer, magician, scribe, astronomer, astrologer, physician, and patron of scholars. NAS architect Bertram Grosvenor Goodhue and building committee member George Ellery Hale were both interested in Egyptology and you will find many Egyptian influences throughout the building. The building itself has even been described as “Alexandrian.” #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

The NAS Building abounds with animals! 🐍🦉🐱 On the roof is an alternating pattern of snakes, lynxes, and owls. Snakes and owls are symbols of wisdom and lynxes are a symbol of alert observation. Photo (c) 2012 Maxwell MacKenzie. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

The dramatic midday shadows in the West Court are created by solar panels embedded into the skylights. The solar panels are one of several environmentally-friendly aspects of the NAS Building. Love this photo 📷 by @rubtherabbit. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences #buildings_of_dc

Happy #MemorialDayWeekend!@thenasciences was founded during the Civil War. Decades later, during WWI, the federal government increased its reliance on the NAS for scientific and technical advice. These 18-foot listening horns for locating distant aircraft were devised for an Academy project in support of the American war effort in WWI. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

#TBT: In 2008, we featured a collection of reproductions of infectious disease health posters from the collection of @nihgov’s National Library of Medicine in an exhibition called An Iconography of Contagion. This poster by #VernonGrant, of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies fame, dates from WWII. During the war, anti-fly health campaigns linked the insects to outbreaks of dysentery and other infectious diseases. 😷 #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences #nationallibraryofmedicine #throwbackthursday

In honor of graduation season: The stylized insignia of several historic universities are featured in our Members’ Center. They were painted by muralist #AlbertHerter in 1924 and we’re told he took some artistic liberties. Pictured here are University of Paris, Cambridge University, University of Bologna, Yale, Harvard, and Leiden University. Do you recognize any of them? 🎓 #cpnas #graduation #nationalacademyofsciences

Because the weather in D.C. has been a little strange this week, we’re sharing a detail of @joygarnett’s Plume 2 from the series Strange Weather (2005), oil on canvas. In this series, Garnett creates paintings based on photos of storms and natural disasters collected from the Internet. We featured her work in the exhibition Strange Weather in 2007. You’ll find this painting in the NAS East Court. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences #artmuseumday

This past winter, @thenamedicine put out a nationwide call for artists to submit artwork that expresses how clinicians, their loved ones, patients, and organizations experience and are affected by clinician burnout and well-being. Artists were asked to answer the question: What does clinician well-being look, feel, and sound like to you? The NAM is featuring 100 of the responses they received through a permanent digital gallery at nam.edu/expressclinicianwellbeing. 👩‍⚕️👨🏽‍⚕️ This piece, Heart Dish, is by Hana Bui, a student at Florida State University’s School of Medicine. 👩🏻‍🎓 Hana writes, “The heart dish was hand built by me as a way to combine my love for medicine with my love for ceramics. Being a medical student is a practice in delayed gratification and endurance. I could see myself getting burnt out had I not discovered pottery as my creative outlet.” Read her full statement online at nam.edu/expressclinicianwellbeing. #clinicianwellbeing #sciart

#TBT: This is a detail of @philipbeesleyarchitect’s #SentientChamber, our 2015-2016 exhibition exploring the future of architecture.

More than 300 million tons of plastic are produced globally each year and less than 10% of this material is recycled, the rest becomes waste that is dumped into landfills and oceans. Neri Oxman and The Mediated Matter Group at @mitmedialab aim to subvert this cycle by creating designed goods that are completely biodegradable. See some of the innovative materials they are designing out of cellulose, chitosan, and pectin in our exhibit, #Aguahoja. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences #sciart #nerioxman #igdc #acreativedc

“Standing before the map, which doesn’t include the familiar names of cities, is disorienting and wistful. Here @rlukedubois allows viewers who can’t immediately conjure an encyclopedic mental image of U.S. geography to consider large and small cities and towns alike — with words from people who feel that someone is missing from their lives.” — @mwecker reviews #duboisdata in @ozy. See the show through August 15.

The NAS’ Annual Meeting brings together NAS members and foreign associates. Members are elected to the NAS in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research. The flags in the Great Hall represent the countries from which the members and foreign associates were elected. 🇺🇸🇦🇺🇨🇦🇨🇳🇫🇮🇩🇪🇮🇳Current membership totals approximately 2,300 members and nearly 470 foreign associates, of whom approximately 190 have received Nobel prizes. Follow the meeting this weekend with #NAS155 and @thenasciences.

We’re featuring a few posts about our grounds and gardens in celebration of spring! 🌸 In 1983, the NAS won the Professional Grounds Maintenance Award. The commendation read, “The groundskeeping of a building directly reflects its image. The grounds of the NAS complement the professional character of members and staff.” #cpnas #ru_soft_18

We’re celebrating spring with photos of the NAS grounds and gardens. This is how our entrance looked from 1924-1951. 🌲Landscape architect Charles Downing Lay executed architect Bertram Goodhue’s vision for the NAS building as “a pavilion in a small but heavily wooded park.” His plan included 70 trees and a variety of shrubs. 💧Three pools lined in turquoise tile drew attention to the entrance. They were later turned into planting beds because they were too expensive to maintain. #cpnas

It’s finally feeling like spring in D.C. and we’re celebrating with a few posts about the NAS gardens! In 1987, parterres were installed in the planting beds leading from Constitution Avenue to our entrance. The word “parterre” comes from French, meaning “on the ground.” Their design is patterned after architectural details in the NAS building (you’ll see a similar pattern on the walls and carpet of our Board Room). You can see the parterres very clearly in this 1987 photo where they are filled with marble chip. They still exist today and are filled with flower plantings. Photo courtesy NAS Archives. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

Think parking is bad in D.C. now? In the early 1930s, some of our visitors had to park on a grassy lot adjacent to the building. 🚘 We just discovered this fabulous throwback in NAS Archives. Pictured is the east side of the NAS building. The tall brick building in the distance no longer exists and is the site of the Harry S Truman State Department Building. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

Paul Brown’s Dragon (2012) is a real-time computational and generative artwork. It is constantly changing and will never appear the same twice. He calls it a “kinetic painting” in homage to the art, science, and technology pioneer Frank Malina who also used the term to describe his own work. 🎨 💻 See it in #ArtMakesItself through July 15. #cpnas 📷: @cpnas

#RebeccaKamen’s investigations of scientific drawings from rarely seen manuscripts inspire her artwork. Her sculpture Magic Circle of Circles (2008) is an abstraction of Benjamin Franklin’s Magic Circle, an elaborate mathematical puzzle in which the sums of numbers along each radius and along each concentric circle equal 360. This sculpture is part of our collection and is on view outside of the NAS West Court. #5womenartists #cpnas #sciart #nationalacademyofsciences
