    President Obama has something going for him that few punditsrecognize - he's a Teflon president. Entering the presidentialelection year, the word "scandal" does not mar his presidency.

    Yes, there are the "birther" inanities, uproars over "policy czars,"and empty allegations of corruption. But even the Solyndra affairseems to have fizzled without the mainstream press invoking the"s" word on a front page.

    This lack of scandal is now drawing attention in Washington. Inhisnew cover storyfor the Washington Monthly, Jonathan Alter

    steps back and asks why it is that Obama has turned out to be aTeflon presidentand how, in a tight race, that could help hisreelection. Please join Alter and Think Progress editor Faiz Shakirfor a panel discussion on The Teflon Presidency of Barack

    SELIN BALCI- Interact and Transform

    Selin Balci applies an acute scientific laboratory practice

    to create her current body of works on paper and board.

    Balci researches simple microorganisms in the lab and

    records the manners in which they interact with one

    another, as well as the colors and aesthetics those

    interactions produce. Balci then creates an artificial living

    environment with limited space and nourishment in a Petri

    dish. Based on her research on colors and behavior, the

    organisms are selected and placed in the Petri dish.

    The simple living organisms are forced to compete and to

    dominate a particular area. Eventually, the

    microorganisms live in harmony. Balci then literally transfers

    the microorganisms to paper or clayboard where shemakes aesthetic decisions about form and color. Selin

    Balci's works are beautiful records of the battles and

    construction of borders, as well as the treat
