Friday Poem

Art and Environment

DNA structure
This is the first of several poems that I'm likely to post by May Swenson.  Maybe I'll even sneak two in as the Friday poem some Friday. And three wouldn't surprise me, either!

Here is one on a very familiar molecule, the discovery of which revolutionized genetics, cell biology and molecular biology.

In this poem Swenson refers to a famous painting, Nude Descending a Staircase by Marcel Duchamp who is associated with conceptual art and Cubism. The 2-Minute Masterpiece series explains and shows this moving piece of art.  And for me it does move or at least the eyes do as it follows the footsteps down the stair case.  The film is followed by another analysis which is about 5 minutes in length.
