Power lines intersect with the lines of satellite orbit trajectories in this detail of Julie Anand & Damon Sauer’s “Calibration Mark AL58 with Satellites” 2018. The area of the Sonoran desert where they are photographing is rapidly changing from agricultural to suburban and many power lines are being installed. They map the orbits of satellites in the sky overhead onto the photo later using their computer. #coronalandmarks #cpnas #ru_lines_18 #sciart

Watch Julie Anand & Damon Sauer take a photograph of Calibration Mark X48 in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona. They took this photo in July 2017 and had to complete the shoot before 8 a.m. when temperatures reach 100 degrees F. The final work and full video are on view in the exhibition #CoronaLandmarks at NAS. #cpnas

O for oceans. A lenticular print by @dianeburko in #glaciersreefs. 🌊 #ru_letter_o

A planet or a Petri dish? @dianeburko evokes both with her reef lenticular print series in #glaciersreefs @cpnas. These prints are like holograms and you have to see them in person for the full experience.

Why do some innovations last? David Edwards discusses at #DASER on Nov. 15. Register via profile link. 📚💡🎨 🔬 Every year, Harvard professor David Edwards teaches a wildly popular class called “How to Create Things & Have Them Matter.” His students are taught to generate, develop, and realize breakthrough ideas for social and cultural change. Drawing on his experience in applied mathematics and as a radical innovator in the medical technology field—including inhalable insulin—Edwards hopes to scare his students away from traditional ways of thinking about inventing new products and services. Edwards’ new book, Creating Things That Matter: The Art and Science of Innovations That Last (Henry Holt, 2018), is his manifesto. #cpnas #lasertalks

Julie Anand & Damon Sauer’s Ground Truth: #CoronaLandmarks is a photography exhibition about surveillance during the Cold War. Long before Google Maps, the U.S. government was secretly taking detailed photos of remote locations in the Soviet Union & China. Concrete markers like the one seen here were used to calibrate the spy satellites. 🕵️‍♂️ 🗺 🌏 #cpnas #sciart

The National Academy of Sciences is a private, nonprofit organization. Many people are surprised to learn that we are not part of the government. #ru_letter_n #cpnas

What remains in the sky and on the earth from a Cold War-era surveillance program? In the late 1950s, markers were placed in a 16 square mile grid near Casa Grande, AZ to calibrate satellites spying on China and the Soviet Union. The project was declassified in 1995 and around 180 of the markers remain today.

A cheerful photo of our Constitution Avenue facade from 📷 @slightlystygianscully. 🏛Some facts about the façade: It is made of New York Dover marble which contains deposits of magnesium that sparkle in the sun; ✨ the beautiful carving above the door is an allegory of evolution; the bronze doors consist of eight panels, each presenting a major event in the history of science including Aristotle, Euclid, Galileo, Newton, Lyell, Darwin, Watt, and Pasteur. #cpnas #nationalacademyofsciences

Most calibration markers from the Corona Project are made of concrete, but a few are made primarily of rocks. Artists Julie Anand and Damon Sauer hypothesize that it is because they were constructed at higher elevations and the weight of the materials, including water at 8 pounds per gallon, would be too labor intensive to transport. Only markers at higher elevations were built from rocks. The artists like the way the rock references earlier civilizations’ rock formations which were also meant to be seen from the sky.

#CoronaLandmarks is on view in our Upstairs Gallery. For the past three years, Julie Anand and Damon Sauer have been photographing concrete markers in the Arizona desert that are relics of the Corona Project, a Cold War-era surveillance program. In the late 1950s, roughly 273 markers were placed in a 16 square mile grid near Casa Grande, AZ to calibrate satellites spying on China and the Soviet Union. The project was declassified in 1995 and around 180 of the markers remain today. Photographs of 20 are on view in our gallery. See it through Feb. 22, 2019! #ru_warmtones #cpnas

On view now! Ground Truth: Corona Landmarks features images by Julie Anand and Damon Sauer of what remains of the Corona Project, a Cold War era surveillance program. 🌏🛰Concrete markers in the Arizona desert helped calibrate satellites the US government used to spy on China and the Soviet Union. Many of the markers remain, and Anand and Sauer have spent three years photographing them. Later, they overlay the trajectories of satellites that were in the sky at the moment they took the picture. In this image, the satellite trajectories overlap with power lines. Pictured: Calibration Mark AL58 with Satellites, 2015, archival pigment print. #CoronaLandmarks #Cpnas #sciart

In our Upstairs Gallery you can watch @rlukedubois’ video Fashionably Late for the Relationship. DuBois filmed performance artist Lian Amaris continuously over 72 hours on a traffic island in NYC and then condensed the footage so that every hour is just one minute. The video is a dreamscape of sorts exploring the contrasting syncopation between the life of an individual and that of a city at large. See the video through September 14. #DuboisData #Cpnas

#Repost @cpnas : We wish you a happy #InternationalCatDay. 😺 This is Cory, a Florida Panther at ZooTampa at Lowry Park that #SusanMiddleton photographed in 1997. They set up a special white background and studio lighting in Cory’s enclosure and Middleton got to spend a whole day photographing her as part of her work on a National Geographic film about America’s endangered species called Don’t Say Goodbye. Middleton was behind a locked gate as she photographed the panther walking around, laying down, and sometimes even looking straight into the camera, as you see here.

Every work of art reveals itself to us as a person, harmoniously feeling himself into a kindred object. - Robert Vischer . Here, in Diane Burkos photoseries, the Artic Melt: images of a disappearing landscape, the artist focuses on an array of natural formations found in Antarctica. . If Mr. Vischer is correct, than nature and environmental art provide an intimate experience not found in any other genre of visual art. It is a moment to reflect on our own creation and destruction, by stepping outside yourself. . Burkos work helps us to explore our reactions to an unknown landscape. While looking at them, we are intimately drawn into the unfamiliar. . Each of these landscapes produce unseen colors and forms which are found anywhere else. As climate change occurs, we are letting these rare colors go extinct and forgoing our ability to connect to creation. . . . #arthistory #arthistorynerd #color #colorful #artic #Antarctica #ice #lightjunkies #lightandspace #enviromentalart #naturephotography #climatechange #landscape #humanities #cpnas #dianeburko #connect #vischer #extinct #landscape #galleryhopping

Coming soon! “Ground Truth: Corona Landmarks,” an exhibition by Julie Anand and Damon Sauer. #CoronaLandmarks opens at NAS on September 17. Anand and Sauer have been photographing relics of a Cold War satellite program in the Arizona desert for more than 3 years. 📷 🌵 🛰 The x-shaped calibration marker you see on the ground is one of approximately 256 such markers placed on a 16 square mile grid in Arizona. They were used to calibrate now defunct satellites photographing remote locations in China and the Soviet Union in the 1960s. In the sky of each photo, the artists overlay a map of the present-day satellites that were there at the moment they took the photo. They use an application called SkySafari to find that information. The photos are simultaneously historic document, aesthetic artifact, and data map. 🗺 #cpnas

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
