"I am among those who think that science has great beauty. A
scientist in his laboratory is not only a technician: he is also a child placed
before natural phenomena which impress him like a fairy tale."
"This spring we asked the Princeton University community to submit imagery
produced in the course of research or incorporating tools and concepts from
science. The response was overwhelming: more than 200 entries from nearly 100
individuals in 15 departments. We selected 55 of these works to appear in the
2005 Art of Science Exhibition.
The resulting assembly of images presents a fascinating and beautiful cross
section of the arts and sciences at Princeton. It celebrates the aesthetics
of research and the ways in which science and art inform each other."
