Have you heard?

You Mom Is Open Source!

No, that is not some veiled condemnation of maternal virtue, but rather the provocative title of Shane Hope's latest Solo Exhibition at the Winkleman Gallery in New York City.

Shane is a modern artist (a digital surrealist?) who applies PyMOL and other open-source tools as traditional artists employ pencil or paintbrush. Not to be missed from his current expo are two works with familiar titles for PyMOL users:

   ray_trace_mode=2

and

   cartoon_trace_atoms=1

though my personal favorite is his

   Junk DNA Sculptural Ontogenesis

 

Shane's other recent "mol mods" can be browsed online.

 

Congratulations to Shane Hope on this latest exhibition!

 

Cheers,

Warren
