About this product
- DescriptionFeaturing the work of artists such as Damien Hirst, Christine Borland, Bill Viola and Helen Chadwick, and art-science collaborative ventures involving Dorothy Cross, Eduardo Kac and Stelarc, it looks at the way new scientific explanations for the nature of human consciousness can influence our interpretation of art, at the squeamish interventions being produced by artists relishing in new techlogies and at art which takes on the dangers facing the fragile environment. Seeing the world from the other point of view can inform the practice of both sides - this book will provide new insights to artists, scientists and the wider public.
- Author BiographyAs Arts Director for the UK branch of the Gulbenkian Foundation, Sian Ede has been a pioneer in encouraging artists to engage with science. A speaker and adviser on art/science interactions internationally, she is editor and author of Strange and Charmed: science and the contemporary visual arts.
