The Mucho Machismo art show opens this FRIDAY at SpokeArt in Oakland, CA- and this is one of my pieces for the show! “Murphy Delivers the Law” is an 18x24 screenprint, signed and numbered in an edition of only 150 copies worldwide. Features metallic silver ink!
You can read more HERE on the Machismo site, and prints should be for sale there or on the SpokeArt site shortly!
Super thanks to Jon Smith for putting on such a great show, and hope the reception is a ton of fun!
Tim Doyle can take all my money if he wants.
First, cast doubt on the science. Second, question the personal motives and integrity of the scientists. Third, magnify genuine disagreements among scientists, and cite nonexperts with minority opinions as authorities. Fourth, exaggerate the potential harm caused by the issue at hand. Fifth, frame issues as a threat to personal freedom. And sixth, claim that acceptance would repudiate a key philosophy, religious belief, or practice of a group.
The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends on how well we know this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky.
