Sculptor Celebrates Intersection of Art and Science
Posted 04/06/2016 04:03PM

Sculptor and lecturer Rebecca Kamen, whose artwork is influenced and inspired by scientific work from medieval alchemical manuscripts to the periodic table to theories of black holes, spoke during a special assembly Tuesday, April 5 about the ways in which art can illustrate scientific concepts.

Kamen, who discussed the history of how art and science have converged since the time of Leonardo Da Vinci, said her artwork is informed by wide-ranging research into cosmology, history and philosophy. She has exhibited at Rochester Institute of Technology, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, National Academy of Sciences, National Institutes of Health, and Georgetown University.
