  1. REZcast: What Design can Teach us about Sustainability

    At the University of North Texas‚ Professor Ruth West instructs a research studio focused on granting students the space needed to explore and refine their interdisciplinary ideas. Aaron Davis was a member of West’s Fall 2015 research studio and focused his research on sustainable design. You can read his project idea here: We condensed the highlights from interviewing Davis into an interesting podcast on design and sustainability! In this episode of REZcast Davis talks...
  2. Art + Science. Cool! But What is It?

    The intersection of art + science is not a place to which a map can be drawn. Its practitioners won’t give you a neat definition of the field or summarize the nut graph of its literature. They will tell you that it’s not about answering the question, “What is art + science?” It’s about asking it. And then immersing yourself in the virtual space of discovery that follows. Taking notes on the...
  3. Coding: The Creative Medium of Our Time

    Ira Greenberg treats himself like a computer. His is the art + science of using coding as a paintbrush and exploring the iterative process of creation. Working generatively, Ira creates art using code and algorithms that are art themselves. The self-dubbed “coding evangelist” believes that coding is the creative mode of our time. While he has two degrees in painting Greenberg decided he wanted to start working with software for art-making. But he found...
  4. Making Art with a Purpose

      One could argue Janeil Engelstad is all purpose, but that would underrate her contributions to the world.  Janeil is creative, dedicated and deeply caring. She uses art and science everyday to create new networks, care for the environment, help different communities, and create new ways of interacting with the world around us. In 2010 she founded Make Art with Purpose (MAP) as a platform for international artists using art as a tool to...
  5. The Digitization of Nature & Culture

    Ruth West is her own walking, talking art-science experiment. She’s looking for the kind of resonances that shake things up to create new systems of inquiry. “Computation and digitization is, in my opinion, the most important transformation of culture” West says. “We’re digitizing everything. Ourselves, nature, culture.” A decade ago, working in a laboratory by day and a painting studio at night, West decided to bring art+science together into one practice. Now,...
  6. A Closer Look at MaterialsSoundMusic

    The Art + Science Rendezvous at the University of North Texas was a kickoff event for dialogue and collaboration among students, faculty, and the general public. Marco Buongiorno Nardelli’s presentation of his MaterialsSoundMusic project proves interdisciplinary thinking achieves novel outputs. MaterialsSoundMusic is a “computer-aided, data-driven composition environment based on the sonification and remix of different data streams.” The project takes data from AFLOWLIB, a large material compounds database and interprets the information through interfaces such...
