I blog at imaginingscienceart.blogspot.c…
I'm also at @DrImmySmith & @ Cartoon_Neuron on twitter

I’m an artist and former neuroscientist. The oddest things in nature and the curious intricacy of biological processes inspire me to make art. I'm interested in the overlapping places between scientific ideas, biological images, personal mythology and surreal art. In my imagination weird cells and strange creatures come out to play... the subconscious can be a busy place, so I try to accommodate all the deep-sea-neuronal-carnivorous fungi-plankton-plants that grow in it.
:dalove: I welcome comments! :iconcircleplz:
Oh and I like to make jokes about marmots every time someone gets too serious...

Happy spring y'all! I hope you're all well.  I don't spend much of my day at a computer anymore, so apols for my absence, and you can keep up with me more frequently if you like via Twitter where my handle is @ DrImmySmith. I can work twitter on my phone but not dA... I'm such a luddite :XD:

I recently won a 10 month residency and so now I work as a resident artist in a brain tumour reserch lab. The project aims to connect the stories of brain tumour researchers and patients through art. You can fin out more about that here - connectingnarratives.tumblr.co… and I promise I will update my dA gallery when I get a mo. Special thanks are due to my collaborator ScottMan2th who has been a part of the journey that lead me to this residency :D

Its an amazing residency, but super-busy. I'm looking forward to some R&R over easter so I can catch up with my Exquisite corpses with LuckyRossMartin and Keneru92 some more. I'm slow but I get there in the end ;)

I'm missing all my dA friends and collaborators, who've supported me through my PhD and beyond, and shared so much fun - y'all know who you are. Especially all the Exquisite Corpser's, and chriseastmids, ArtByCher, SalHunter, aruarian-dancer, Bernardumaine, MBKKR, TazPoltorak, TRANSMICHION... aaaaarg there's too many people I miss! I hope we can connect through other networks, I'll try and get my rear in gear on dA when I can. Hugs to y'all xxx

Biofilter: Other end of the world by Immy-is-Thinking
Biofilter: Other end of the world
This is a collaboration with the amazing SalHunter for her filter paper project - she sent me some painted filter papers (12.5cm diameter) and I draw on them in a series of little moments :)

There are words, automatic writing, which I make on the back of things. The ones from this one are;

"Things are not the same as they were
Change is inevitable ... like death, taxes and loss of data

Sometimes I don’t feel like I own my own hands
What’s in that nucleus is only part of how I was made

Once you break the surface the illusion never recovers

I think I am more seasonal than I’d like to admit and that the weather affects how I perceive being in a place ... not always in a good way. But I always like the rain

I think it’s worth making space ... in my head at least."

You can find Sal's upload here Biofilter-4-otherendoftheworld so go show my girl some :dalove:...Thanks so much Sal! :hug: See the rest of the biofilter series here salhunter.deviantart.com/galle…

Cyclamen with Dirt and Fingerprints by Immy-is-Thinking
Cyclamen with Dirt and Fingerprints
Polychromos pencils on 24cm diameter whatman filter paper, based on a Cyclamen from the Herbarium - open edition signed prints available from Etsy - www.etsy.com/uk/listing/211106…

Exhibited at the Pencil Museum in Keswick, UK. This Cyclamen colchium was collected on an expedition in Georgia, by the Cyclamen Society. It was in the process of being preserved at Herbarium RNG when I originally saw it. Botanical artists generally resurrect the living plant in their artwork, but I am not a botanical artist… I’m more interested in the meticulous artistry of specimen preparation, and the stories that travel back with each item. The process and narrative of the pressed specimens themselves is as fascinating as any plant. So that is why I draw specimens with labels, dirt and all! The fact that Georgia is not the safest country to collect in, and is on the news for its precarious political situation with Russia, also adds to this specimen’s story. It speaks to the ability of botany and scientific endeavor to overcome political difficulties, and transcend geographical boundaries.
