Our work, which often draws inspiration from the
mundane, has been featured in various media, perhaps because
it deals with the everyday world around us, which while familiar is not always understood ! A quote by the English
lexicographer and man of letters, Samuel Johnson
(1709-84) may be apt: "Vulgar and inactive minds
confound familiarity with knowledge, and conceive
themselves informed of the whole nature of things
when they are shown their form or told their use."
Read an article by scientist and author Philip Ball on everyday science titled Foams of Fancy
Materials. Or read the Boston Globe editorial titled Why ? which was also reprinted as an editorial titled Let's go on asking why
in the International Herald Tribune. And an article
by mathematician Gilbert Strang of MIT titled A remarkable eye for out-of-the-ordinary mathematics published in the applied mathematics newsletter SIAM News. Our work has also inspired artist Jonathon Nix ; paintings from a recent exhibition include the
Mahadevan Series. And recently science journalist and author Giselle Weiss wrote an article titled Das ratsel des zerknullten papiers
for the Swiss newspaper NZZ.
