Following brief introductory remarks about the art-science interface by Roger Malina, physicist, astronomer, Executive Editor of Leonardo Publications at MIT Press, and J.D. Talasek, Director, Cultural Programs of the National Academy of Sciences, attendees will tour installations that reflect a variety of ways that people are crossing disciplinary traditions in the 21st century.

Some installations are the result of collaborations between artists, scientists and technicians that reflect the potential of multiple outcomes – both cultural as well as scientific in nature.  Other installations are the result of new learning models where the individual practitioners have achieved advanced degrees and experience in both the sciences and the arts.

Here’s a preview of all the exciting artworks in the exhibition: Keck Futures Creative Engagements.
