Image Gallery: Science Meets Art -- Princeton University Art of Science Competition

Where Art & Science Intersect

Where Art & Science IntersectCredit: Christophe Gissinger, Princeton University Art of Science CompetitionPrinceton University's annual Art of Science exhibition explores the interplay between science and art, with each piece in the exhibit revealing those moments of discovery when what you perceive suddenly becomes more than the sum of its parts. In 2011, the fifth year of the competition, 168 pieces of art were submitted from 20 university departments, with 56 works chosen for the exhibition, each meant to fit with the year's theme of "intelligent design." (Shown above, an image created from a model illustrating the reversals of the Earth's magnetic field; these polarity reversals have occurred several times over the past 160 million years.)
