I Like Big Bubbles...
Scale Free Network recently explored the science and art of making big bubbles with Brisbane-based art gallery,
TW Fine Art.

This public, participatory activity was led by SFN's Jacqueline Smith and took place in the Brunswick Street Mall in Brisbane.

Taking a deeper look into the science of the bubble, SFN worked with artist/graphic designer Gert Geyer to create a Bubble-ology poster.

Big fleas have little fleas, upon their backs to bite ‘em.
And little fleas have lesser fleas, and so, ad infinitum.
