This exhibition features 12 works by scientists and artists who are developing research here at NYU Abu Dhabi and abroad. Whether working alone or in a group, each of the scientists developed artworks inspired by their research through a variety of media, including photography, video, sound, and installation. The different research topics include, biology, engineering, chemistry, math, space science, and climate change. The works bring to light the contrasts and interconnections between art and science. This exhibition is the second in a series, and part of the ongoing efforts of theseartist-scientists to develop knowledge rooted in interdisciplinary studies, openness, and creativity, and ultimately to grow a cohesive artistic, scientific, research community and network.
