Art + Science Now

Carnie, Andrew, Wilson, Stephen (ed.) (2010) Art + Science Now, London, GB, Thames & Hudson, 208pp.

Record type: Book


A global overview of the ways in which contemporary artists draw on scientific and technological developments to explore new forms of creative expression. In the twenty-first century, some of the most dynamic works of art are being produced not in the studio but in the laboratory, where artists probe cultural, philosophical, and social questions connected with cutting-edge scientific and technological research. Their work ranges across disciplines—microbiology, the physical sciences, information technologies, human biology and living systems, kinetics and robotics—and takes in everything from eugenics to climate change to artificial intelligence.

This comprehensive overview covers a dazzling array of work produced by some 250 artists from America, Japan, Germany, France, the Netherlands, the UK, and elsewhere. It presents a broad range of projects, from body art to bioengineering of plants and insects; from music, dance, and computer-controlled video performances to large-scale visual and sound installations. Special features include a full reading list and lists of pertinent museum collections, festivals, and research centers. 270+ color illustrations and photographs.
