"N x fp x ne x fl x fi x fc x fL = N" September 18, 2009

Artwork by John Mack

N x fp x ne x fl x fi x fc x fL = N is better know as Drake's Equation. It is famous for it's results in the search for extraterestrial intelligence. The main purpose of the equation is to allow scientists to quantify the uncertainty of the factors that determine the number of such extraterrestrial civilizations.

John's artwork deals with the search for other forms of life in an interesting way. The gallery was dimly lit. One flashing orange light shown over the "UFO." About every 3-4 minutes, the space ship would start to rumble as if it was about to take flight.

John graduated from the Fine Arts program at Ringling College in 2007. Since then he has been working as the technician for the Fine Arts department at Ringling College. He has exhibited his work at the Mack B Gallery and Greene Contemporary in Sarasota, and more recently at the Chelsea Gallery in the Wynwood district of Miami.
