Collaborations between artists and scientists can generate new forms of inquiry and produce results that benefit multiple fields. This course will examine the rich history of art/science relationships and new art forms emerging from partnerships with scientific disciplines including ecology, biology, sociology, economics, and engineering. Students will investigate challenges related to how modern institutions distance the humanities and sciences and strategize how to meaningfully engage with scientists in this context.
