My Bio

ART TO HELP MAKE SCIENCE A MORE MEANINGFUL PART OF OUR LIVES

Through countless mythological traditions, humanity has proven to have a deep-seated need for awe-inspiring stories and the experience of wonder. With a powerful resonance, these stories provide a framework for understanding where we fit in our communities, and in our cosmos. They can also give a us a feeling of shared connection and participation with the rest of humanity, helping us to show our more caring and compassionate side.

Unfortunately, the most popular stories being passed on today come from traditions developed in very different times. These antiquated stories inevitably come prepackaged with inseparable cultural baggage and outdated ideas that are, sadly, ill-suited for the equality, understanding, and change that our modern culture so desperately needs.

What are the resonant, positive, and awe-inspiring stories of today? How can our expanding scientific knowledge drive our enchantment with the natural world and grow our empathic interests toward our fellow humans? Exploring these questions visually, Rob hopes to promote or create the stories that best help us to achieve these goals.
