The Science Tarot

I just realized that I haven’t posted about The Science Tarot yet, despite the fact that I could barely contain my joy upon learning of them.

Science Tarot is a creative science communication project that combines science, art and mythology into a tarot deck to engage and awaken people’s curiosity about science and the natural world.

I can get positively lost in any ONE of those subjects for hours on end (until I once again realize I’ve just geeked away another afternoon or evening).

I feel particularly lucky to enjoy this deck as someone who has already studied the tarot as an artistic representation of human archetypes for quite sometime. I will never cease to be fascinated by the symbols, images and systems we construct as we try to navigate and contextualize our experience on this planet.

Science may be rigid and precise, but let me remind you:

“Science without enchantment is nothing.”
Richard Axel

The introduction of scientific anecdotes into an already awe-inspiring tome of human myth and artistic expression does not surface nearly enough, in my opinion. I can’t wait to see how this particular group of artists portrays these fascinating relationships.

I better not make any plans when my deck arrives in the mail.
