Since the earliest days of humanity, the urge to create has been intertwined with the desire for knowledge, experimentation and the collection of information. The line between artist and scientist is often so blurred as to become imperceptible, often with artists contributing vit...al visualizations that enable the progression of scientific discovery - and scientists providing raw data and the opportunity for observation to artists hungry for invention. Rarely has any field gone without examination and depiction by artists - from botany and natural history to neurology and optics. The Art of Science explores the work of forty artists and artist-scientists whose work has furthered and made visible the relationship between these fields. Lavishly illustrated, the book authoritatively explores the age-old affinity between two disciplines whose commonalities are greater than their differences.
