Nabokov's Notebook

Nabokov's Notebook A blog about the science in art and the art in science.
"I discovered in nature the nonutilitarian delights that I sought in art. Both were a form of magic, both were a game of intricate enchantment and deception." -Vladimir Nabokov (Writer, Lepidopterist.)

Sometimes, I post art pieces in which a direct connection to ‘science’ seems tenuous at first, at least in the formal sense. This may be one of those posts. 

But I share NeSpoon’s installation of delicate lace-work strung up along the shores of the Baltic Sea because I like the simple pleasure of seeing geometric patterns held against a natural backdrop. Symmetry holds us all together, after all.

    Delicate lace-work on driftwood by NeSpoon is a great combination photography & art.
