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. 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 fifth Art of Science competition hosted by Princeton
University. The 2011 competition drew 168 submissions from
20 departments. The exhibit includes work by undergraduates, faculty,
research staff, graduate students, and alumni.
The 56 works chosen for the 2011 Art of Science exhibition represent
this year’s theme of “intelligent design”
which we interpret in the broadest sense.
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
We thank all those who submitted their work to this year’s

expressed both in their scientific research and in the artistic fruits
of that research.
