science + culture


I came across a brilliant site the other day called Phylotaxis. It was developed for Seed Magazine, as a space were science meets culture. Essentially, the site scours a host of science-oriented news sources and blogs and then presents the stories in a visually stunning fashion.

The site's creator Jonathan Harris explains it this way...

Phylotaxis illustrates the delicate balance between science and culture in our world. Without the randomness of culture, science becomes dry and predictable, imprisoned in a strict square grid. Without the rational thinking of science, culture quickly teeters towards chaos. Only when science and culture act as peers can harmony be achieved, expressed through the astonishing Phylotaxis shape.
