Art-Science Collaborations

Art, again and again, through history has spurred and sped the process of science. It challenges what we know and see, as well as our sense of what might be possible. Yet, the opportunities for artists and scientists to work together, or even just side by side, are few. To spur such possibilities we have begun to create opportunities in our lab for artists and scientists to work together, at the same bench, exploring truths together.
