Colliding Worlds: How Cutting-Edge Science is Redefining Contemporary Art
tells the story of how artists, scientists and technologists are working together to create a new art movement. It is a journey behind the scenes into a bold new world and features a close look at the artists themselves: their creativity and what drives them, their struggles, and the drama of developing a new art form. Just like previous avant-garde art movements this one is up against a hostile art establishment intent on maintaining the status quo. Distrustful of science and technology and of how its products fit gallery norms, the art establishment remains mired in the last century.
