Is the gap between art and science artificial?

SEED is a Dublin-based group devoted to developing creative projects connecting art and science. They organise a broad range of activities including informal salons, exhibitions, workshops and performances. Among recent guest speakers was Professor Sir Harold W. Kroto, co-recipient of the 1996 Nobel Prize for Chemistry for the discovery of Buckminsterfullerene, one of the founding figures in the field of nanotechnology and one of the world’s best-known science communicators. He gave a talk at the July SEED salon on the theme of ‘Science and Art Can Be One and the Same, Sometimes’, and also gave an interview to RTÉ radio about the links between art and science. For more information and to hear the interview visit the SEED blog.
