Seattle's ArtsWest Prepares a Radically New Production of Green Day's American Idiot

L. Steven Sieden | September 4, 2015 | Arts
Something amazing is happening in a small West Seattle theater. ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery has been a mainstay of the community for quite decades, but I don't think they've ever created anything as edgy as their upcoming production of Green Day's American Idiot.

Paint by Number and Equation

Tim Chartier | September 3, 2015 | Science
Artistic inspiration comes from anywhere even painting by numbers. However, in this case, the numbers are a table or matrix of numbers. How? First, take a look at this image that was part of the mathematical art exhibit at the Bridges conference which celebrates connections between math and art.

The convolutions Harris and Wilson conjure in their separate diversions earn a high hair-raising quotient, but perhaps even more irresistible are the Walliams and Raine performances -- performances built, needless to say, on how the characters are drawn.
