Rebel Science is a Mobilized Wall mural painted by Joerael Elliott focused on the current US administration's treatment of the science community. It seems as if the whole of science and scientist themselves are under an attempt from the Trump administration to delegitimize long term data and research. This mural is to honor past science history relative to the present. This mural represents scientist and science related figures diverse and under celebrated. Each one of the people depicted in this mural in their own time had an attempt from outside sources to delegitimize their work or their personal orientation be it race, sexual orientation, discoveries, progressive outlook, gender or nationality. The Science community is a rigorous global network of highly talented and intelligent human beings that hold one another accountable. Together this community strives for the edge of what we can comprehend in the deepest levels of any discipline currently known. These discoveries can bring our quality of life to a high standard and make the world more bearable place. The research and data the science community provides can help us deepen our relationship to the Earth, one another, ourselves, the universe at large and how to avoid our destructive human negligence. More than ever we must support the complex legitimacy of this important community our humanity and a clean life on Earth depends on data as well as supporting the data that is brought into our awareness.

Claude Elwood Shannon: (April 30, 1916 – February 24, 2001) was an American mathematician, electrical engineer, and cryptographer known as "the father of information theory". Shannon is noted for having founded information theory with a landmark paper, A Mathematical Theory of Communication, that he published in 1948.

Marie Curie: Born (7 November 1867 – 4 July 1934)was a physicist and chemist and a pioneer in the study of radiation. She and her husband, Pierre, discovered the elements polonium and radium. Together, they were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1903, and she received another one, for Chemistry, in 1911.

Henrietta Lacks: (Born Loretta Pleasant; August 1, 1920 – October 4, 1951) was an African-American woman whose cancer cells are the source of the HeLa cell line, the first immortalized cell line and one of the most important cell lines in medical research. An immortalized cell line will reproduce indefinitely under specific conditions, and the HeLa cell line continues to be a source of invaluable medical data to the present day.

Giordano Memory Wheel

Giordano Bruno: The Italian philosopher and poet Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) attempted to deal with the implications of the Copernican universe. Although he made no scientific discoveries, his ideas had much influence on later scientists and philosophers.

The Drake Equation: is an attempt to encapsulate all the variables that would be relevant to establishing the number of intelligent civilizations that existed in the Milky Way galaxy and which were broadcasting radio signals at this particular point in time. The Drake Equation is composed of seven terms.

The “Instituto Cajal” is a neuroscience research center assigned to the Spanish Research Council (CSIC). The Cajal institute is the oldest neurobiology research center in Spain. Along its more than 100 years of existence, renowned scientists and professionals have spread worldwide and contributed to the remarkable advancement of neurobiology.

Santiago Ramón y Cajal Drawing

Santiago Ramón y Cajal : Born ( 1 May 1852 – 17 October 1934) was a Spanish neuroscientist and pathologist, specializing in neuroanatomy, particularly the histology of the central nervous system. He won the Nobel prize in 1906, becoming the first person of Spanish origin who won a scientific Nobel prize. His original investigations of the microscopic structure of the brain made him a pioneer of modern neuroscience. Hundreds of his drawings illustrating the delicate arborizations of brain cells are still in use for educational and training purposes.

Tu You You: Born (30 December 1930) is a Chinese pharmaceutical chemist and educator. She is best known for discovering artemisinin (also known as qinghaosu) and dihydroartemisinin, used to treat malaria, which has saved millions of lives. Tu Youyou's discovery of artemisinin and its treatment of malaria is regarded as a significant breakthrough in 20th century tropical medicine and an important health improvement for people of tropical developing countries in South Asia, Africa, and South America. For her work, Tu received the 2011 Lasker Award in clinical medicine and the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine jointly with William C. Campbell and Satoshi Ōmura. Tu is the first Chinese Nobel laureate in physiology or medicine and the first female citizen of the People's Republic of China to receive a Nobel Prize in any category, as well as the first Chinese person to receive the Lasker Award.

One of Galileo's Compasses

Galileo Galileo : Born (15 February 1564 – 8 January 1642) was an Italian polymath. Galileo is a central figure in the transition from natural philosophy to modern science and in the transformation of the scientific Renaissance into a scientific revolution.

Alan Turing: Born ( 23 June 1912 – 7 June 1954) was a mathematician, cryptographer, and a pioneer of computer science. Today, Turing may best be known for his work at Bletchley Park during World War II, and his part in breaking the German Enigma code.

Charles Robert Darwin: Born (12 February 1809 – 19 April 1882) was an English naturalist, geologist and biologist, best known for his contributions to the science of evolution.He established that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors and, in a joint publication with Alfred Russel Wallace, introduced his scientific theory that this branching pattern of evolution resulted from a process that he called natural selection, in which the struggle for existence has a similar effect to the artificial selection involved in selective breeding.

Katherine Coleman Goble Johnson: Born ( August 26, 1918) is an African-American mathematician whose calculations of orbital mechanics as a NASA employee were critical to the success of the first and subsequent U.S. manned spaceflights. During her 35-year career at NASA and its predecessor, she earned a reputation for mastering complex manual calculations and helped the space agency pioneer the use of computers to perform the tasks. Her work included calculating trajectories, launch windows and emergency return paths for Project Mercury spaceflights, including those of astronauts Alan Shepard, the first American in space, and John Glenn, the first American in orbit, and rendezevous paths for the Apollo lunar lander and command module on flights to the Moon. Her calculations were also essential to the beginning of the Space Shuttle program, and she worked on plans for a mission to Mars.

Richard Phillips Feynman: Born ( May 11, 1918 – February 15, 1988) was an American theoretical physicist known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics for which he proposed the parton model. For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman, jointly with Julian Schwinger and Shin'ichirō Tomonaga, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965.

Mobilize Walls: is a unique large scale mural project attempting a massive petition of scale. Mobilize Walls utilizes concepts from complexity and network science to achieve an overarching mental model of resistance to counter divisiveness. The work itself may not specifically address complexity / network science, however the overarching project will. This is done by way of making a large quantifiable decentralized network of murals. Creating a decentralized network of murals to out-scale the proposed US/MEX border wall has never been attempted before. Joerael is working to push the boundaries on how current and historical issues are visually portrayed, healed, discussed ,conceptualized, activated and shared through public art.

Joerael Elliott

Born in San Angelo Texas (1980) Joerael is a narrative artist with a focus on creating complex figurative works. His figurative works focus on the subtle body, psychological imprint and the metabolic hum. In the figures Joerael weaves current and historical content pertaining to social justice, to Earth’s environment, and that of the sacred. His works range from small scale mixed media drawings and paintings to large murals. Joerael has developed a visual and conceptual vocabulary from his direct experience as a yoga practitioner/teacher, activist, traveler, graffiti writer, street artist and as a Texan . Elliott’s intentions as a narrative artist and a teacher of Yoga is to create non-reductive works that cultivate a contemplative space of liberty through living symbolism and the creative unconscious.
