What does science gain from interaction and engagement with the arts?
Science-art collaboration is a meaningful way in which the sciences and arts can interact, and is often cited as the path towards innovation in our 21st century. In collaboration, artists gain special and intimate access to science and its processes. This leads to new ideas and new works. But what do scientists gain from interacting and engaging with artists? While the artistic products of science-art collaborations are the stuff of public exhibitions, how art influences science mostly comes in the form of word-of-mouth stories.

AS IF resident
In March 2018 it was my honor to take a mini residency at Art + Science in the Field: AS IF Center which is nestled in the mountains of western North Carolina. I had met Nancy Lowe, the Center’s founder and director, at an art and science conference organized by SciArt Center and The Helix Center in New York last December. She offered me her card and began to describe the new AS IF residency program. As a visual artist my hand cut paper work is informed by scientific investigations of water and the land around it. I knew that the location of AS IF made it the perfect place to incubate my developing project that incorporates aspects of geology, hydrology, and sociology with art.
