|AWARDS & ACHIEVEMENTS|
"Æsthetics of Science"
Curated and introduced by Alain Cohen, a new exhibit, unveiled in February at the UCSD Faculty Club, high-lights the powerful synergy between science and art. The exhibit features works from UCSD’s leading national and international researchers and science scholars working at the Supercomputer Center, the SIO Visualization Center, and a wide variety of cutting edge labs. In Alain's words:
"The 35 'paintings' look like art, they have been produced on campus, and they shape new models of vizualisation in the not-so-random harmonies juxtaposed in the nano, the micro, and the macro. Microphotography of nerve cells is cheek-by-jowl with computer generated galactic images a billion years after the Big Bang, canyons on Mars, Earth's ocean floors, imperiled cells, 3-D objects and fMRI scans, anatomic virtual reality, the essence of turbulence, and a pulsed-power experiment. The images are familiar or unfamiliar, disturbing or ecstatic, but the lines, forms, and colors seem as compelling as the science by which they are propelled."
Contributors are acknowledged in the catalogue available at the Faculty Club. The exhibit will remain open until the end of April.
