While demonstrating how science is affecting the creation and interpretation of contemporary art,
this book proposes that artistic insights are as important on their own terms as those in science
and that we can and should accommodate both forms of knowledge. Featuring the work of artists
such as Damien Hirst, Christine Borland, Bill Viola and Helen Chadwick, and art-science
collaborative ventures involving Dorothy Cross, Eduardo Kac and Stelarc, it looks at the way new
scientific explanations for the nature of human consciousness can influence our interpretation of
art, at the squeamish interventions being produced by artists relishing in new technologies and at
art which takes on the dangers facing the fragile environment. Seeing the world from the other
point of view can inform the practice of both sides--this book will provide new insights to artists,
scientists and the wider public.
