Event Details

Art and science have always formed a natural partnership. Artists have an intangible ability to help people understand complex ideas. Their works have visually described new species, demonstrated complex natural and technological processes and concepts, and have enabled us to see the microscopic and the cosmic.

In this talk, Rae will discuss the importance of art in the sciences; how it has inspired scientific progress, the power that it wields as a tool to communicate science, how she has successfully collaborated with scientists to create dynamic SciComm projects and how you can too!
