Sub-atomic flow

Sub-atomic Flow #3624 copyright 2021 Douglas Stockdale - When I published my earlier article about a trip up to Oregon and then out onto the coast to visit Patterson beach, I had hinted that there might be another follow on article, which is this one. Another aspect of the Oregon coast is the many small... Continue Reading →

May the 4th be with You!

Nude Descending a Staircase (after de Kooning)

I note that there is almost a transition point between the basic two types of refractions, something I will explore during... Continue Reading →

Art-Science – continuing into 2021

My principal COVID project is developing a series of artworks based on an aspect of science; Quantum mechanics and... Continue Reading →
