Re: [Yasmin_discussions] Next Step Publishing

Dear Yasminers,

Relevant to the discussion about new forms of publication is this:

A paper about a new scientific discovery has just been released in
the 2011 Journal of Plankton Research. DOI: 10.1093/plankt/FBR006.

Authors: Kawaguchi, S., Kilpatrick, R., Roberts, L.,
King, R.A. and Nicol, S.

I was invited to co-author this paper as an artist. I made an animations
and drawings that help to reconcile observations with scientific
theories about how krill have sex:

Here is the television publication of the discovery:

As more artists join scientists to observe and explain new findings,
new forms of publication are being formed that satisfy academic and
aesthetic ways of knowing.

I am interested to hear from other artists who are working with
scientists to shape the new forms of publication.
