Performance art via kayak at Fort Point - By Cate McQuaid
"There's a choice little piece of waterfront property along Fort Point Channel, snug to the Summer Street Bridge along the Harbor Walk. Early last week, the place was surrounded by a picket fence and had a “For Rent” sign up. So what if it’s only 8 feet square, and floating in the channel. It looked darling in the late afternoon sun — at least until a redheaded woman in a business suit arrived in a kayak and started renovating. She tore down part of the fence, built a desk, and picked up a phone.
Welcome to “The Remodeling Project,” the latest installment of Fort Point's Floating Art Series, and the first one featuring performance art. The woman in the chic black suit was artist Heidi Kayser. She enlisted a builder in Maine to make the square wooden dock, and throughout the month, she’ll be kayaking out periodically to her little patch of paradise and changing it up."

Curious, An Introduction to Big Ideas in Nature, Science and Art - is an online project based on SIM's pioneering elective, Nature, Science and Art that John taught for many years while a professor in SIM. Visit the project: http://www.naturescienceart.wordpress.com
This project is an effort to introduce leading-edge ideas in science to a general audience. It is particularly aimed at those who want real answers to serious questions that they have inquired about since childhood, and are often not addressed at home or at school.
Much of the reason that these answers aren’t available in primary and secondary classrooms is that some of the most intriguing and even astounding information has only been available within the last 25 years.
Subjects which traditionally have been thought of as largely abstract and unsuited for analysis such as music, love, life, sex, and death suddenly have new and profound meaning in light of late 20th and 21st century discoveries in evolutionary biology, brain science, and genetics. In short, we are undergoing a major revolution in the sciences, and it is having a large impact on our understanding of who we are and how we see ourselves and others.
The information for this project has been gathered from science writings, from my own informal research, from rigorous discussions with informed artists and scientists (especially my Nature and Inquiry colleagues), and from 20 years of teaching the Nature, Science, and Art college course on these general themes.
The contents of Curious are being posted in serial form. Over the next few months, I will add a new Chapter each week. When all of the Chapters have been posted (see Table of Contents), the project will be complete.
