fiorella_thumb.jpgHad lunch with Dr. Fiorella Terenzi. She is an Astrophysicist / Recording Artist / Author. She recently created a line of jewelry based on astrophysical phenomenon. She is selling them on QVC. She said that some of her colleagues mocked her, but that reaching the masses and trying to appeal to them about the beauty of science was an important mission. I totally agree. I admire Fiorella and her desire and courage to break out of the ivory tower of academism and try to communicate. I feel that the art community, the science community and academic community in general shuns the popularization of their fields. I think that with the communications technologies of today, it is an utter waste to not try to communicate to the public, what is going on in art and science. It takes a great deal of courage, but I think people like Fiorella should be encouraged and supported by both the public and people in their respective fields. Fiorella has made space the theme of her music and other forms of public expression that she has been engaged in and is truly an ambassador from the field of astrophysics.

funny. this is a kind of flashback. I know Fiorella since I met her at the CyberArts 1990 conference! that time she got out UCSD for research and was just finishing the first CD from the astrophysics data downconverted into audio frequency. then Mondo2000 people put her on the frond cover of the mag in 1992. if you dig your bookshelves you might find it. : )

The ubiquitous Gosuke strikes again...

Ive been into Fiorella for quite some time and she is simply amazing. She even found a page on my site where I had done a review of her CD, and e-mailed me with a thank you for the review. Last year I finally got a chance to attend one of her classes in NYC and had a chance to speak with her for quite a while, get some autographs, and she even had me get a picture taken with her... a very wonderful, very beautiful, very intelligent woman. I look forward to attending one of her larger seminar events.

How cool. Is there any place where I could see Fiorella's jewelry besides QVC? Perhaps a shop in the Bay Area that carries them or a website?

I'd like to see them. My wife loves space imagery, physics, etc. (and well-made jewelry *laugh*) and so I can't help but thinking that perhaps a piece of Fiorella's jewelry might make a great gift for her.

But I can't really deal with QVC/HSN, etc. They are a bit much. I'm sure you all can relate..
