The Science of Art Team

Overview

The science of Art Team is an ongoing investigation into the connections between Materials Science and Art. The team has focused on making Glass and Ceramic art up in our Love 369 lab. Some example pieces are pictured below and show the skills of glass cutting and mold making that the team has developed over a span of 2 semesters.

Applications

The connection between Materials Science and Art has always existed. Heightened awareness of the connection between Materials Science and Art has allowed for expansions in both disciplines. From the creation of artificial dyes in the Renaissance Era, and recent advances in modern Computer Aided Design that have allowed work being done in the Joris Laarman Lab.

We hope to improve our understanding of the connection between Materials Science and Art to be able to expand the possibilities of what can be done in the MILL, and to provide a space for students to be able to apply what they learn in class in an unconventional way.
