Greg Dunn, having a Ph.D in neuroscience, was inspired to do this artwork by seeing neurons treated with certain stains. The neurons he saw in his microscope reminded him of the Asian art he loved so much already and went on to paint neurons in the Asian sumi-e style.
Exploring the fusion of art and science through designs in gold leaf
In the “brain dead” scene, the monitors of Charles´s brain activity react to Erik´s voice. To Erik´s voice and nothing else. And someone else tells Erik “you do something to him. I just don´t know if it´s good or bad”. “Yes. This has always been the problem”.
And my heart melts.
And then Erik gets attacked and Charles - still very weakened - without a single thought decides to protect him and fight against much stronger enemy. It’s one of my most favourite Charles/Erik stories ever.
Be sure to look out for the Moon these next few months as it approaches Perigee, because the full moons during these times will appear exceptionally large. The Moon will be at its Perigee, or closest approach, in July 23 and it will reach full moon only a few minutes after it passes this point in its orbit.
These ‘super moons’ not only appear larger because they are physically closer but, combined with a full moon, the mind can play tricks on you to think they are much larger. This phenomena is called the Moon Illusion. Try to catch these full moons as they rise/set because the illusion works when there is an object in the foreground, like a tree, building or mountains.
Virginia Woolf’s suicide note, written to her husband Leonard.
On 28 March 1941 Virginia Woolf put on her coat, filled the pockets with rocks and walked into the River Ouse near her home and drowned herself. Her body wasn’t found until 18 April 1941. Her husband burried her cremated remains in their garden.
On Casting Marion Cotillard in The Immigrant: “The big challenge obviously was her Polish, which turned out to be fantastic. One day, I asked the actress who plays her aunt what she thought of Marion’s Polish. She said it was excellent but she had a slight German accent. I confronted Marion and she said: “I know, my character is from Silesia, which is between Germany and Poland, I’m doing it on purpose.” That’s how precise she is! It knocked me out.” — James Gray
