First Sentence
When I first became interested in science and found myself in the company of scientists, 1 was regularly struck by their frequent use of a word that is scarcely ever heard in the arts. Read the first page

This is an excellent and engaging overview of the field of sci-art. It is very comprehensive, although some artists are inevitably omitted, notably Kathleen Rogers and Liliane Lijn. It doesn't stint on the science- but you can get your head round it even if your science education stopped at GCSE (like mine did) as it is written in a very accessible way.

As an arts person who is fascinated by the crossovers and collaborations, as well as popular science I'd thoroughly recommend it. Down with the 'two cultures'!

Perfect for those who like the STEAM way of teaching (science, technology, engineering, art, and math). 25 Dec. 2013
By M. Fitz - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I teach high school art and after reading a couple chapters, my mind is loaded with ideas for using this in my art classes. I am not a scientist and find the descriptions and writing very clear, visual, and understandable. Expands the mind and proves that everything is connected. A good book.
