Phil Webster to be next Artist in Residence at Simons Center for Geometry and Physics

I am VERY excited to announce that an opportunity that came up back at the Bridges conference has come to fruition.

I am now officially going to be the Artist in Residence at the Simons Center for Geometry and Physics (SCGP) in Stony Brook, NY from January-April 2013. The purpose of the gallery is to foster collaboration between the worlds of art, geometry, and physics, and to expose the public to this intersection. Their web site is here if you want to see more about it: http://scgp.stonybrook.edu/art-and-science-program

So, what does this mean?  In short, I will be living at Stony Brook, and from 11am-2pm Mon-Fri, I will be in the Simons Center’s art gallery greeting visitors, answering questions about the current exhibit, and doing my art and demonstrating what I do to those who are interested.  I will also have some of my art in the gallery itself and give a couple of public talks and/or workshops along the way. I will also have the pleasure and developmental opportunity to interact with the professors and students affiliated with the center, a few of whom I already know from the Bridges conference. Finally, of course, I will have concentrated time to develop my art.
