Artist Update

Macallan 101 -- Ernie Button
The NPR food blog The Salt recently featured the beautiful whiskey-dervied images of Ernie Button. Read it here. The post also focuses on the the science of the subtle rings that Button captures in his photographs, saying, "According to Howard Stone, head researcher at Princeton University's Complex Fluids Group, the rings and waves seen in Button's images are probably the result of particles that are left behind once the alcohol has evaporated." And Button's beautiful images have inspired these scientists, who now plan to do research on it. "In particular, they are looking into why different types of whisky produce subtly different patterns."

Golden Fleece -- Alan Friedman
Alan Friedman's stunning sun photographs were recently featured on Insidehook. Read it here. A backyard astronomer, Friendman's images are made using "a jerry-rigged ten-inch telescope, some narrow-band filters and a 120 frames-per-second webcam (the same kind used to snap pics of your license plate) in his upstate New York backyard," the article says.
