When Art Meets Science: Broadening Horizons through Interdisciplinary Practice


Science and art often have a perceived divide in contemporary culture, yet historically both their roots stem from similar manifestations of creativity and aesthetics, in exploring, responding to, and explaining Nature. This Royal Canadian Institute panel presentation brings together scientists, artists, and those with a foot in each of the ‘two cultures’ to discuss their interdisciplinary practices, and encourage novel ways to understand the world around us.
