Science Meets Art, John Potts και Nigel Helyer, Jenny Stanford Publishing Marilena Pateraki
This book explores collaboration between artists and scientists and examines the ways in which scientific data and research findings can be communicated, translated and transformed using the techniques of contemporary art and information technology. Contemporary art forms—including installation, sculpture, painting, computer-based art, Internet art and interactive electronic artworks—are able to provide new and creative outlets, with expanded audiences, for scientific research.
The book, which features 75 illustrations of works created as a result of art–science collaboration between scientists and artists, is important in the field because it presents a thorough account of the collaboration through the eyes of a leading creative practitioner and a leading cultural theorist. It contains a wide range of in-detail examples of successful collaborative works that illustrate the breadth and depth of contemporary interdisciplinary creative-research approaches.
