Synergy: An Experiment in Communicating Science through Art
Opening October 1, 2012 in Rotch Library
Eight Boston and Cape Cod professional artists have been paired with MIT/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution scientists to render complex scientific concepts accessible to the viewer. Both artists and scientists must dynamically translate across disciplines, yielding a heightened clarity for the broader impact of scientific research. The outcome of these collaborations will be an exhibition at the Museum of Science, Boston, 2013 that invites the general public to explore oceanography through compelling art. In anticipation for this show, preliminary works by the artists and original artwork by the scientists are on display at the Rotch Gallery on MIT campus. Visit Rotch to get a sneak peek into the body of work arising from Synergy.
