A beautifully designed and illustrated book containing essays and images by contemporary artists. A rare opportunity to gain access to artists' reflections on their work and the role science plays in informing their ideas and influencing their practice. Despite the obvious differences between art and science, this collection of essays posits the claim that science and art offer much to each other: science has benefited tremendously from the work of artists as have artists from the work of scientists. Edited by Alannah Robins, founder and director of Interface, an artists studio and residency in Connemara in the West of Ireland, the editor brings the practice as well as the theory into sharp focus through her experience of working internationally in her own multi-disciplinary art and in bringing artists to the studio to explore at a conscious level the intersections between art and science.
