    My research as a violinist at the University of Alberta explores the idea of ‘metaphoric intersectionality’ (Duerden, 2007) between violin and dance gestures. This is the idea that physical and music gestures in violin performance can lead to insights into the gestures of dance, and vice...

    This image shows a single DNA molecule being unzipped using laser tweezers. The lasers act like 'tractor beams', pulling the micron-sized beads biochemically linked to the ends of the molecule, toward the optical focal point. By moving the laser beams apart, we apply tension to the ends of the...
