While I’m about to embark on my residency at the Swinburne Centre for Astrophysics and Supercomputing, and getting quite giddy with excitement reading Gap formation in the dust layer of 3D protoplanetary disks, I also have this feeling I’m not alone, being one of three wildly different artists ANAT’s AIR Residencies making things of art-science beauty.

Chris Henschke is at the Australian Synchotron, putting incandescent light bulbs in front of its optical beamline, and Leah Heiss is at NanoVic, making fabric and objects that can heal or communicate something about our wellbeing. Both of them make me feel quite overwhelmed, and yes, both of them are blogging.
