This presentation is part of: Engineering

The motion of matter and waves, computational science, digital technology and the arts

Norman Zabusky, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ

I will discuss how artists over the centuries have represented waves and matter in motion, from Leonardo da Vinci to contemporaries like Ned Kahn. I will also emphasize how new technology has affected the broadening of artistic expression. For example in the arts the advent of photography and now digital sculpture. In the sciences imagery from computer simulations and measuring devices, e.g.. the Hubble space telescope wide field camera and high speed cameras . These images can inspire artistic collaboration between a scientist and artist. Also included are illustrations and animations from the work of Jacob Fisher, Keith Brown, Ned Kahn and my own collaboration with Hilary Shames, all participants in the International Science and Art Symposium in New Brunswick, NJ, June 10-12.
