Princeton’s Art of Science 2014

 

Loading Events

The Art of Science 2014 showcases images of artistic merit created during the course of scientific research. The exhibition spurs debate among artists about the nature of art, opens scientists to new ways of “seeing” their own research, and serves as a window through which the general public can appreciate both art and science. These images were chosen from more than 250 submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, staff and alumni representing more than 25 different departments at Princeton University. They span the fields of electrical engineering, ecology, evolution, chemistry and biology with images of termites, cockroaches, fruit flies and geological structures.

Watermarks by Sara Sadri, postdoc, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Princeton University.

“Watermarks” is by Sara Sadri (postdoctoral researcher). Water can erode rock, carve through cliffs, and sculpt sand. Water moving back and forth on the Atlantic coast created this intricate pattern. As a hydrologist, I am fascinated by the natural phenomena of our beautiful planet. The way water in this picture found its way back to the ocean reminded me of a peacock’s tail spreading under the sun or a woman’s hair blowing in the wind.

Free with NYSCI admission.
