I ran across this 2005 story on NPR which features artist Ned Kahn. Kahn is a scientist/artist whose work highlights natural phenomena and, as he says, "let[s] nature do the sculpting." His work is rarely static; rather, it focuses on recurring patterns of behavior in nature. You're probably familiar with many of the exhibits he's created for the Exploratorium, but his work doesn't stop there. Be sure to visit the video gallery and portfolio on his website to see some of the other fascinating work he's done.
