Study the science of art and the art of science.
--Leonardo da Vinci

The Art of Science exhibition explores the interplay between science and art. Both of these disciplines involve the pursuit of those moments of discovery when what is perceived 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 sixth Art of Science competition hosted by Princeton University. The 2013 competition drew 170 submissions from 24 departments. The exhibit includes work by undergraduates, faculty, staff, graduate students, and alumni.

These 44 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 work to this year's competition. We are inspired by the breadth of their creativity both in their scientific research and in the artistic fruits of that research.

Art of Science 2013 is sponsored by the David A. Gardner '69 Fund in the Council of the Humanities, the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, and the School of Engineering and Applied Science. It is co-sponsored by the Office of the Dean for Research, Lewis Center for the Arts, PICSciE, Keller Center, Office of the Vice President for Facilities, Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics, Cooperative Institute for Climate Science, and departments of Astrophysical Sciences, Computer Science, Chemical and Biological Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Molecular Biology, Physics, and Psychology.

Many people contributed their time, talent and support to making this exhibit happen. Immense gratitude goes to Pablo Debenedetti, Dean of Research.
