After having viewed some of Natasha Vita-More's art at http://www.extropic-art.com/contents.htm, I was reminded of something Richard Feynman ("What do you care what other people think") said somewhat sadly about the lack of attention paid by society to the wonders of science

"Our poets do not write about it: our artists do not try to portray this
remarkable thing. I don't know why. Is no one inspired by our present picture of the Universe? This value of science remains unsung by singers: you are reduced to hearing not a song or poem, but an evening lecture about it. This is not yet a scientific age."

Through your art, Natasha, you are giving these wonders a vivid and accessible interpretation. I am sure, if he could see your work, Feynman would be smiling now.
