Visualizations: The Nature Book of Art and Science - Martin Kemp - Google книги

Martin Kemp. Martin Kemp's provocative essays on the interplay between art and science have been entertaining readers of Nature, the world's leading journal for the announcement of scientific discoveries, since These short, illustrated, highly regarded essays generally focus on one visual image from art or science and provide an evocative and erudite investigation into shared motifs in the two disciplines. Gathered together here with a delightfully rich introduction by the author, the essays take our understanding to an exciting new level as they transgress the traditional boundaries between art and science. The images under consideration cover Western art from the Renaissance to the present day, and the science ranges from abstract mathematics to the illustrative modes of natural history and medicine. Kemp skillfully discusses the Mona Lisa as well as horror films, Galileo's moon drawings and diagrams in modern physics, Renaissance pottery and logos on trucks, the invention of perspective, and contemporary masterpieces.

Martin Kemp. Martin Kemp is the author of the widely acclaimed weekly pages "Art and Science" and "Science and Image" which have been appearing in Nature since In this visually stunning book, he brings together all his fascinating articles that discuss the interactions between the visual arts and science. It includes a lively introduction describing Kemp's novel approach to the subject, where instead of describing the influence of art on science or vice-versa he emphasizes the structural intuitions shared by artists and scientists. In over 75 articles, each accompanied by one or more full color images, a wide range of art and science are covered; from Leonardo's Mona Lisa to Robert Hooke's stunning image of the eye of a fly in a microscope, from abstract mathematics to the illustrative modes of the horror movie and commercial logos.
