‘Art of Science’ exhibit makes the connection between truth and beauty

Princeton University is having a new “Art of Science” competition, allowing students and researchs to contribute scientific visualizations of their work in art-gallery form, competing for (rather meager, unfortunately) prizes.

The three prize-winners will share $500, divided into shares of $250, $154.51 and $95.49 in accordance with the aesthetically pleasing golden ratio. Another 40 images are included in Princeton’s Art of Science 2013 exhibit, which opened on Friday in the atrium of Princeton’s Friend Center. The works were chosen from 170 images submitted from 24 different departments across campus.

The theme was of “Connections”, focusing on cross-disciplinary research.  Follow the link to the full gallery of some of the best work.
