Founded by Gordon and Cathy, mylastboard contains articles, views, comments, photographs and lots more on the subjects of art and science.
I am Cathy Bell an art historian, artist, writer and freelance curator. In this space I would like to share various ideas about art and culture incorporating such items as published and unpublished articles/reviews, personal views and artwork.
I am Gordon and my interests are mainly in science, mathematics and engineering. Why mylastboard? The image you see above is a copy of the contents, after 23 years of teaching, of my last board. The subject was thermofluids.
We hope to provide some interesting and though-provoking content.
We have now introduced a new format BULB MAGAZINE. This will include new writing and artwork with sections such as Features, Reviews and more. Our aim is to include and welcome contributions from other writers, artists and commentators. We are pleased to introduce the art of Italian artist Edgardo Gastini in our first feature in the Magazine. Also, in this section, we have an essay on the Swedish silent film Ingeborg Holm by first-year English and Film student Paloma Nicol. The film was a landmark social commentary on poverty in Sweden in the early part of the 19th-century. The latest feature discusses the link between the celebrated but almost forgotten photographer E.O. Hoppe and Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his wife Margaret.
We have now added a new section to the magazine for FICTION - the first contribution is Donald McKenzie's short story ELEMANTAL. This was first published in the Northwards Now literary magazine in 2014
