A recent article in the Huffington Post adds to our understanding of the art and science connection. In a fascinating interview, artist and academic Rebecca Kamen shares how her work is strongly influenced by a passion for both art and science.
She says “Scientists and artists have intuitions about certain things, which provides the basis for their research. Both disciplines conduct experiments and collect data in a manner that tries to support the illusion, creating a path for making the invisible, visible”.
The interview, which elucidates more fully on the art-science connection and how this is represented in her works, is one of a series of interviews with artists and humanists being featured in the Huffington Post.
