A listing of various problems solved with Python and related scripting.

Quick Glimpse:
This is a graphical representation of a methane (CH4) molecule.
The 3-Dimensional coordinates were calculated (on paper) and then plotted with Matplotlib in the Python programming language.

XXXX, the robot.
c. 2018 with Raspberry Pi.

Video 1. Spinning head of XXXX, the robot, in response to somebody getting too close.

First, you see the Python script that controls the robot's behavior. Then we see the breadboard, which serves as a platform for the distance sensor and motor driver. The small distance sensor sends out a sound wave with one component and receives the same signal with another, once it has bounced off of something in front of it. The script calculates distance from the measurement of time between out and in. If there is something within a distance of 25 cm, a current is sent to the DC motor, which spins at 25,000 rotations per minute. The motor is connected to a gear box, which slows down the output rotation and then connected to the head of the robot, which is made of styrofoam and hollowed out.

Video 1. Final project for cinematography course under Ilya Simakov.
Kino 4ft., Fresnel 2000 watt, color filters were used to create two color-distinct worlds.
Here, the two worlds meet and interact.

Video 2. Halfway through the semester. Davinci and Adobe Premiere.

This video was edited on Adobe Premiere from over 100 hours of footage from two camerapersons. The editing was accomplished when I was working for, my nephew's company, based out of Atlanta, GA.

"False Confidence"

Some music made throughout the years. Each piece was recorded live on an iPhone, sans post-production. The guitar and bass on each track is layered/looped on a JamMan Loop pedal and the drums and vocals are performed simultaneously along with the loop.

Travel Through the Body.

Artist Statement:
The world is composed of an infinite number of complicated processes. Our experience of the world is housed in the human body, which itself is composed of a myriad of complex processes. In my experience, the elucidation of the workings of the world and our human experience by learning how the body works has only added to my wonder and perception of beauty of the world around and inside of us. Many believe that there is too much to learn on too many different levels to actually gain meaningful insight, and I feel a responsibility to use the biology and chemistry education that I was priveleged to receive to ease the audience into and provide a clear window to the beauty inherent in the workings of human body. With this exhibit, we wish to create an aesthetically exciting and educating representation of some of the molecular, cellular and physiological processes and characters that reside in each and every one of us.

Art by Dan DeVargas, Jacquelyn Rodinis, and Peter Rodinis


If you were to ask a physician, they'd tell you that the lumen* of your intestines is actually outside of your body. They'd say the inside of your stomach is outside your body too. Picture it. (SEE IMAGE BELOW) We could insert a 30 foot string into your MOUTH and guide it down your ESOPHOGUS , into your STOMACH, into the SMALL INTESTINE , your LARGE INTESTINE, and it would just barely make it out your RECTUM.

*In biology, a lumen (plural lumina) is the inside space of a tubular structure, such as an artery or intestine.[1] It comes from Latin lumen, meaning 'an opening'.

Figure 1. Peter, Mad Scientist. Oil on canvas by Jacquelyn Rodinis.

Above, we see the interior of the peritoneum of a human subject with the esophagus leading down into the stomach, which connects to the small intestine, then the large intestine, comprised of ascending, transverse, then descending colon which empties through the rectum.
This is the digestive tract, which we can think of as one long tube from the mouth to the anus.

Figure 2. Mitochondrion. Color pencil by Dan DeVargas

Here is one of the many mitochondria you would find residing in each of your cells. The mitochondrion will play a big part in this exhibit because it is in this organelle that the glucose we ingest is "broken down" and plays an integral part in making ATP usable.

for piece: epithelial cell of small intestine, where the glucose gets absorbed into the body.

Figure 3. Kreb's Cycle. Color pencil by Dan DeVargas.
Kreb's Cycle

The pyruvate from glycolysis is transported into the mitochondrion and jumps into the Kreb's Cycle.

Figure 4. ATP Synthase. Color pencil by Dan Devargas.
ATP Synthase

This protein is located in the inner membrane of mitochochdria and is the agent of the chemical reaction which is final step of making ATP.

ATP: The Universal Energy Coupler
The anabolic reactions of cells are responsible for growth and repair processes, whereas catabolic reactions release the energy needed to drive the anabolic reactions and to carry out other kinds of cellular work. The efficient linking, or coupling, of energy-yielding processes to energy-requiring processes is therefore crucial to cell function. This coupling is made possible by specific kinds of molecules that conserve the energy derived from exergonic reactions and release it again when and where energy is needed. In virtually all cells, the molecule most commonly used as an energy intermediate is the phosphorylated compound adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is, in other words, the primary energy “currency” of the biological world.[2]
