After researching on Mark Siddall, Ramona returned to us the task of transcribing the interview. Mark Siddall is the curator of the Picturing Science currently on at the American Natural History Museum. The interview was extremely interesting, but required me to look up spelling for certain scientific things. Luckily for me, I have some science background, so it wasn’t as difficult as it could have been (yay! positivity!).
Using ExpressScribe made it easier, but it was still very time-consuming and required a lot of concentration. Breaks were required and there was a deadline that I had to meet.
He talked about how scientist have been using imaging devices for few decades now and their images haven’t been considered art even though the process maybe the same. The idea behind his Picturing Science, is to make the viewer see science differently, more as an art. The concept that beauty comes from nature and that science can capture this beauty. He also discussed interdisciplinary and how important it is for innovation and progress.
