Scientists are clever artists

This piece of art on the cover of New Scientist magazine (March 30th - April 5th) made me smile.
Dry, witty and really very, very clever....

The value of humour in art is immeasurable.

The history of the multi-tool first we found a need....which developed into a tool to trust....then we added "cool" design....and finally we succumbed to fashion.


A reflection of the alleged progress of society perhaps...

Look Up...miss nothing.

When young, I was always taught the benefit of looking up when walking through any built up areas.
The bland mundane shopfronts, almost identical in every town or city, often sit beneath some beautiful architecture of assorted eras. It is an almost foolproof way of finding reward from what can often be otherwise stale and dull surroundings.

However, on rare occasions, the reward of beauty can sometimes be replaced with a smile, especially when the surreal, such as this, pop up...

Makes me want to know the story behind it.
