"[An] encyclopedic survey... Dr. Miller's grasp of the scene is impressive." -- Jascha Hoffman "[Arthur I. Miller] deftly demonstrates in this survey of what he calls "artsci" [that] both artists and scientists...have probed the porous borders between art and science, creating aesthetic objects that incorporate scientific ideas... Miller eloquently chronicles the story of artsci in brief vignettes of the lives and works of the individuals working at the intersections of these disciplines." "Arthur I. Miller understands the intersection of art and science better than anyone writing today. In Colliding Worlds, he brilliantly helps us expand our definitions of art and science while encouraging us to appreciate how both involve an intuitive feel for the beauty of the unseen." -- Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs "Arthur I. Miller explores what happens when the brainwaves, objectivity and logic of science spark off the inspiration, subjectivity and wildness of art, and vice versa. After tracing out the contacts between these spheres of endeavor, Miller goes even further, suggesting that the boundaries between them are breaking down: science is redefining contemporary art to seed a third culture." -- Roger Highfield, director of external affairs, Science Museum, London "Arthur I. Miller's Colliding Worlds answers the age-old question of whether art and science can find common ground with a resounding YES! From the foundations of Cubism to bacterial radios, fluorescent rabbits, and musical hyper-instruments, Miller's easygoing, anecdotal, and wide-ranging narrative shows how artists exploit cutting-edge advances in science and technology to alter dramatically the palette of artistic invention." -- Mark Pagel, author of Wired for Culture "Arthur I. Miller has the rare intellectual range to address the ways modern scientific discoveries have nourished the creativity of artists-and that's what he's done in this fine book." -- Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal and author of From Here to Infinity "Illuminating... [A] philosophically rich study of creativity and aesthetics." -- Grace LabattRezension:
