Welcome to the Art Science Movement! +- is a publication that looks at the intersections between art and science. Each issue focuses on a different area of crossover that we find interesting and relevant. This edition’s theme is MICROSCOPY.
Barcelona-based artist Sergio Albiac puts a stunning spin on Carl Sagan’s iconic description of humanity’s cosmic origins with his latest project, Stardust Portraits. Now’s your chance to see your face drawn with galaxies,reimagined in a celestial form. And best of all, it’s totally free.
As we have seen in the short life of my little blog, histology of fatal diseases can look as beautiful as a Van Gogh, as vibrant as a Matisse or as startlingly abstract as a Pollock. The images above are a sample of histology images taken by the medical scientists who work with devastatingly dazzling tissue biopsies and samples at John Hopkins’ School of Medicine.
This is histology forcing us to confront the fascinating beauty of some of the most frightening pathological diagnoses that appear so destructively beautiful - hidden within us.
These images are published alongside many more in a book entitled “Hidden Beauty: exploring the aesthetics of medical science” and can be seen at the book’s site.
The theme for the next edition of +- is SCIENTIFIC MACHINERY.
We’re looking for articles, photography, research papers, exhibition and art projects — it can be anything in any format as long as it features artsy automatons, painting robots or another variant of SCIENTIFIC MACHINERY.
