Journal of the Month: Leonardo

The Journal of the Month for October 2012 is Leonardo, the Journal of the International Society for the Arts, Sciences and Technology.

Leonardo was founded in 1968 in Paris by kinetic artist and astronautical pioneer Frank Malina.  Malina saw the need for a journal that would serve as an international channel of communication between artists, with emphasis on the writings of artists who use science and developing technologies in their work.  Today, Leonardo is the leading journal for readers interested in the application of contemporary science and technology to the arts. —

 Volume 45, No. 5 Features:

 “That’s not all folks” — What can film and animation tell us about showing moving particles too small for light to catch?  Can Disney cartoonists add something to science? 

 “Do’s and Don’t’s for an Articulated Head” — Christian Kroos, Damith Herath and Stelarc on how to make a sociable robot pay attention—but not too much attention.

“The need to do nothing” — An elusively enticing installation helps cognitive scientists clear their head spaces.

Be sure to browse Leonardo and all the journals the library has to offer!
