Art helps us see the world. Science teaches us to define it. Combine them, and the world is magnified beyond measure. Bones, soil, lipids, polymers, supernovas — they are all represented here in the second annual campus-wide Art of Science competition. And you don’t have to understand any of those things to appreciate their beauty.
The Art of Science competition challenges UCSB researchers — undergraduates, graduate students, and post-docs — to express the joy of scientific discovery through aesthetics.
