I am delighted to feature in today's Artist Watch at Escape Into Life the work of artist and neuroscientist Greg Dunn, Ph.D., of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Now a full-time artist, Greg was a graduate student at the University of Pennsylvania when he began drawing on his knowledge of neuroscience, physics, and biology to investigate the artistic process through imagery, concept, and technique. His artistic experiments, on which he collaborated with artist and applied physicist Dr. Brian Edwards, led to invention of the revolutionary technique called reflective microetching, which allows dynamic control of imagery and color on reflective gold surfaces. More about the technique and its application is included in the Artist Watch feature.

In addition to eight images from Greg's and Brian's Self Reflected project, today's Artist Watch column includes Greg's Artist Statement, A Note on Process, Definitions, and a brief biography.

Here's one of several videos from the Website for the Self Reflected project:
