June meeting to explore how science, technology inspire art; promote new art forms

NEW BRUNSWICK/PISCATAWAY, N.J. Following in Leonardo da Vinci's footsteps, modern scientists and artists will meet in New Brunswick, N.J., USA in June to share their work and explore how science and technology continue to inspire art and make new forms of art possible.

Organized by Rutgers University professors, the Fourth International Symposium of Science and Art will examine how scientific images, such as microscopic views of molecules, natural and computer displays of fluid motion, and glimpses of far-off galaxies, become the subjects of paintings, photographs, animation and sculpture. The conference also will look at how new materials, computer software and other technical advances lead to new forms of artistic expression.

"Examples abound of artists being inspired by science and drawing on technology to portray their ideas in classical and modern media," said Norman Zabusky, mechanical engineering professor of computational fluid dynamics and conference director. "We're bringing together scientists who appreciate the artistic merit in the subjects they're exploring with artists who see beauty in the latest scientific discoveries. Together, they'll share ideas and draw inspiration in venues ranging from scholarly talks to gallery presentations and museum visits."

The symposium, to be held June 9-12 at the Hyatt-Regency Hotel in downtown New Brunswick, is accepting advance registrations through May 15. Applications to exhibit art work or present conference papers are due Feb. 21. These can be made at the meeting web site, www.mechanical.rutgers.edu/scart4.

As an expert in fluid physics, Zabusky long ago noticed how the images he created to grasp scientific principles had a certain kind of beauty. Contrary to the stereotype that scientific and artistic personalities don't mix, he shared his work with artists and developed a strong rapport. At the last symposium, Zabusky delivered the keynote address on fluid and wave imagery, noti
