I’ve mentioned Seed Magazine before, but I also wanted to mention a few (and I mean a few because a more extensive sampling would require WAY too much time, but maybe more later) other options for anyone interested in getting more in depth into the study of science and art.
An interesting paper (PDF) on the human brain’s reaction to art, and how the brain has possibly evolved with the help of art.
A short 1997 article introducing a study of art that visually describes quantum physics.
Robin Yeary, “The Art of Science,” IEEE Computer Graphics and Applications, 17(2), pp. 4-5, March-April, 1997. (I can’t get a link because I’m not an IEEE member, but I’m sure it’s awesome).
And of course there is always the SPIE Journal of Electronic Imaging.
The Art of Science, By Boris Castel, Sergio Sismondo – looks at scientists and the doing of science
The Art of Science: Activities and Creative Ideas for the Teaching of Science to Children 5 to 9, by Barbara Hume and Christine Galton (pretty self-explanatory).
Pythagoras’ Trousers: God, Physics, and the Gender Wars, By Margaret Wertheim.
More a book about culture and science, but worth perusing. And NO, it’s not a man-bashing book. It’s really about Physics.
