The Art of Science
Heather Barnett, Richard J Bright, Sheena Calvert, Nathan Cohen, Holme, Adrian
Art and science – they may seem like opposites, but throughout history there have been visionaries who have brought together these contrasting subjects.
The Art of Science explores the work of 40 such artists and artist-scientists, uncovering how these innovators have designed futuristic technology centuries ahead of its time, investigated time and space through abstract art, and created sculpture informed by NASA technology.
An expertly curated selection of artists from many different cultures and eras – including Huang Quan, Leonardo da Vinci, Johannes Vermeer, Anna Atkins, Olafur Eliasson and Anicka Yi – this book tells the story of the vital partnership between art and science, with over 200 lavish illustrations.
