Collective Marvelling Across Art and Science
Introduction
The Trenches of Discovery is a blog collectively authored by artists and scientists working actively in diverse fields of fundamental research: cosmology, biochemistry, aesthetics.

Our aim is to create a platform for this research to be shared and discussed: both between disciplines, and across them, to a wider community.

We hope this blog will spark an interest and a greater sense of involvement in what is often very specialized work. We want to create a mode of access to the truly astonishing discoveries occurring daily and in plain sight, yet strangely hidden, at universities, laboratories, museums, technical institutes, and so many other publicly-funded institutions of creativity and research.

Not least, we hope to broaden our own knowledge by conducting this discussion—across deep differences in specialization and training—online and in public. We're after the kinds of insights that can only be ignited by real, frictional collaboration: through conversation, disagreement, and an active sense of wonder.

Is there a new cosmological coincidence problem (or two)?

Back to biochemistry. Was Lamarck maybe a little bit right about human evolution?

Ever wondered exactly how this inflation thing can lead to a multiverse?

I'm going to try to write something about life in Finland, via a seasonal serialisation...

"Randomly turning genes on and off... and then hoping that exactly the right ones get affected to cause cancer remission is a bit like randomly firing a shot gun into a crowd and hoping only to hit people born in November"
