2017 Art of Science Exhibition
Friend Center Atrium
Weekdays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
On view through April 2018

The 2017 Art of Science exhibition explores the interplay between science and art and consists of images produced during the course of scientific inquiry that have aesthetic merit. The entire Princeton University community — undergrads, faculty, post-docs, staff, graduate students, alumni — were invited to submit images or video. The exhibition will be on display through the end of the year in the Friend Center Atrium on the University campus. The exhibit is free and open to public during Friend Center hours, open weekdays 9:00 am.-5:00 p.m.

Art of Science 2017 is sponsored by the David A. Gardner ’69 Fund in the Council of the Humanities, and by the School of Engineering and Applied Science. The exhibit is co-sponsored by the Lewis Center for the Arts, Princeton Institute for Computational Science & Engineering, the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, Council on Science and Technology, Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, and the departments of Astrophysical Sciences, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Physics, Psychology, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, and the Program in History of Science. Prizes are provided by the Office of the Dean for Research.

ABOUT

The Princeton University Art of Science exhibition explores the interplay between science and art. Entries were chosen for their aesthetic excellence, their scientific or technical interest, and for their universal appeal that crosses cultures, languages, and age groups. Art of Science spurs debate among artists about the nature of art, opens scientists to new ways of “seeing” their own research, and serves as a democratic window through which the general public can appreciate both art and science — two fields that for different reasons can feel threatening to the non-expert.

Powerful imaging tools can now capture our world in ways never before contemplated and unintentionally produce aesthetically interesting visual artifacts. When viewed through the lens of art, these images can further man’s concept of what it means to be human, enhance our appreciation of the natural world, and enrich our cultural heritage by expanding the definition of what we call art and who we call artists. Ultimately, the aim of Art of Science is to create a new symbiosis of two fields that are essential expressions of human creativity.

This is the eighth Art of Science exhibit and competition hosted by Princeton University. The 2017 competition drew more than 170 submissions from a wide-range of disciplines. The curated selection this year includes both images and videos by undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, alumni and staff.
