WHAT IS SCI FOO?

Science Foo Camp (or “Sci Foo”) is an invitation-only gathering organized by Digital Science, O'Reilly Media, and Google, with support from Nature. The 9th edition of Sci Foo takes place on 8-10 August 2014 at the Googleplex in Mountain View, CA. Lord Martin Rees has defined it as “a sort of mini Woodstock of the Mind”. Participants include researchers, writers, educators, artists, policy makers, investors, and other thought leaders, all doing groundbreaking work in diverse areas of science and technology.

Angelo Monne’s unexpected metaphors

Posted on saturday 21 june 2014, 48 days before scifoo14 • Written by Mariano Tomatis

His name is Angelo Monne and he is my favourite graphic designer. I have met him on the pages of the weekly magazine Internazionale and I have been marveled by his sketches. Never trivial, they always play with the core of the articles illustrated, focusing on unexpected metaphors or minor (and surprising) details.

Angelo’s drawing I love most is on the wall of my office: it is the one illustrating the article “Combating bad science” published on The Economist.

What a lovely way to represent the hazardous mix of Magic, Science and Deception!
