This is an extremely welcome and perhaps well overdue survey of the current state of art that takes inspiration from developments science and technology. Stephen Wilson really knows his stuff and has picked an excellent representative cross-section to look at - and they are all well-illustrated throughout, with each section introduced insightfully by Wilson. Though it offers no real depth of coverage to any artist in particular - which is inevitably the nature of an overview - it really gives you some great starting points, as I know enough about some of the artists mentioned in this book to be sure that any further enquiries into any of them will give you far more to consider and enjoy. He also includes a great list of links at the back that helps with this.

I personally have no doubt that we are witnessing a massive shift in the whole idea of art, expression and identity in our culture, and that this is only the beginning of something that will go on and on developing. So it's great to see it brought together by someone who actually knows what they are talking about - and the fact that none of us know where it's heading is all part of the fun.

One warning though - that this book may confuse and irritate those that see art purely as a traditional painting or sculpture. It's not for you, unfortunately, unless you can open your mind.

Highly recommended - Da Vinci would have loved it.

a selection of sci-art from 2000 onwards.
each chapter comes with several pages of introduction followed by catalogue of artwork.
Each is attached with a brief introduction.

The creative mind of these artists is surely impressive
most artwork are not conventional art such as painting and sculpture, a new and daring territory

Brilliant, comprehensive resource. The layout of the pages is very engaging, a very good balance of photos and text, and the text is efficient and not waffling, which is something rare in art books today, there is either no writing to give proper information on concepts or intentions behind a piece or pages of analysis that doesn't actually say anything . An UNBEATABLE overview of this specific area of art.

This is one of the best books covering an overview of Art and science collaborations that I have come across. It's enjoyably to read no matter what your background. I always have it to hand.

Great choice for my science mad nephew, to encourage him to look at the more creative side of science. Intersting and unusual.
