To celebrate the one year anniversity of The Frontier Channel, I am introducing a brand new section called “ART at the Frontier” (Update: this section was later merged with the rest of the Frontier Channel site. Category is “Media”.) In this section I will explore the intersection of science and technology with art. This is where the stereotype of cold technology collides with the heat of passion and aesthetics. The results are often beautiful, unexpected, and life altering. Please take a look and send in your comments.
