Study the science of art and the art of science.
--Leonardo da Vinci
Princeton University is hosting fourth Art of Science competition. The exhibit includes work by undergraduates, faculty, research staff, graduate students, and alumni. The theme for the 2010 Art of Science exhibition was “energy”.
If you have experience of working (hard) in a lab, you know the instant pleasure of seeing something beautiful and artistic. I wonder how much influence that has onto creativity. I have few such experiences of non convergent bubble graphs during my Monte Carlo runs. I will certainly post few of them in future... to me they looked beautiful.
The pictures presented there were produced during the course of scientific research.
Here is the video from Vimeo:
While you are there do not forget the previous year's archives.
OK OK... It may be hard; but it is not boring :P
