Rekindling curiosity using redefined shadows.
Humans face the eternal struggle of curiosity-versus-fear. On one hand, curiosity drives our scientific endeavors, creative explorations, and social compassion. On the other hand, many of us think that fear is more important because it lets us survive.
I am Gea Parikesit. My maxim is "to choose curiosity over fear".
I play at the nexus of physics, engineering, arts, and education, where I redefine shadows and use them to stimulate curiosity (see my playlist below). For me, a shadow is a very unique media: despite the fact that many of us still associate shadows with fear, our history of playing with shadows has already started from at least the second century BCE.
My results are featured as a Cover Article in Physics Education, as a Keynote Lecture related to the International Year of Light, and as an Art Exhibit in Jogja ArtWeeks. For details of my qualifications, see my Curriculum Vitae or contact me by e-mail: geaofp[at]yahoo[dot]com.
