Product description

Martin Kemp is the author of the widely acclaimed weekly pages "Art and Science" and "Science and Image" which have been appearing in Nature since 1997. In this visually stunning book, he brings together these fascinating articles discussing the interactions between the visual arts and science. A lively introduction describes Kemp's novel approach to the subject. Instead of describing the influence of art on science or vice-versa he emphasises the structural intuitionsshared by artists and scientists. In over 75 articles, each accompanied by one or more full colour images, a wide range of art and science are covered; from Leonardo's Mona Lisa to Robert Hooke's stunning image of the eye of a fly in a microscope, and from abstract mathematics to the illustrative modes thehorror movie and commercial logos. The study of the relationship between the visual worlds of the artist and the scientist is placed on a new basis. The result is a unique and fascinating book which will be of great interest to artists and scientists alike.
