  1. Hi Idan,

    I am an artist in Sydney. And am collaborating with Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQ2CT) towards and exhibition in May… I worked as a scientist for years.. and much of that work was on the biology of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and how it thwarts the immune system!.. a far cry from art and quantum physics in some ways. I read your piece in the Australian writers book of 2015 and I really loved your writing and engaging style and also the fact we have a similar background. I was pointed to your writing by the woman working at the UNSW bookshop where I picked up a copy of the book. I would love to chat to you sometime.. as I am trying to connect with science writers who may be interested in writing about or thinking about the art of science.. which is what my work is about (www.sidsledge.com).. Please let me know if you would be interested in chatting further. I am based in Sydney, but come to Melbourne sometimes.
    All the best
