The Art of Science exhibition explores the interplay between science
and art. These practices both involve the pursuit of those moments of
discovery when what you perceive suddenly becomes more than the sum of
its parts. Each piece in this exhibition is, in its own way, a record
of such a moment.
This is the third Art of Science competition hosted by Princeton
University. The 2009 competition drew more than 200 submissions from
16 departments. The exhibit includes work by undergraduates, faculty,
research staff, graduate students, and alumni.
The 48 works chosen for the 2009 Art of Science exhibition represent
this year’s theme of "found art." These extraordinary images are not
art for art’s sake. Rather, they were produced during the course of
scientific research. Entries were chosen for their aesthetic
excellence as well as scientific or technical interest.
We thank all those who submitted their work to this year’s
competition. We are inspired by the breadth of their creativity as
expressed both in their scientific research and in the artistic fruits
of that research.
We are grateful to our sponsors, without whose support this
competition could not have taken place:
Office of the President
Office of the Dean of the Faculty

Special thanks also to our distinguished panel of judges: David
Dobkin, Dean of the Faculty; Emmet Gowin, Professor of Visual Arts;
