Learning to cross train - Drue Kataoka's digital art installation

I am always inspired by those who break out of their fields, trades or mediums to find new areas to influence and be influenced by.  My entire life has been a zigzag of wonder that looks like a meander that had purpose.  But I never knew the end game of my zags or the impact of my zigs.  I just knew I should pursue them at the fastest speed possible.

Touch Your Future by Drue Kataoka

One who does this better than any of this is the inspiring Drue Kataoka.  My friend Drue is an artist of great success who moves between media with ease and can create art from ink, dye, glass, and even ones and zeros.  Her latest installation, shown at TEDWomen 2015, is a piece of digital art that intends to unite us all around the subject of infant mortality.  I can scan my hand with my phone, and have it added to the turning beauty that is Touch Our Future.  Have a look, add your hand, consider on the subject, and drink it in.  Maybe it's time I pick up a paint brush.
