Description

 

Authors Ian Blatchford; Tilly Blyth. Publisher Bantam Press. Hardback. 320 pages. Based on the landmark Radio 4 series, and Science Museum exhibition, this modern history of the connections between science and art reveals a new perspective on what that relationship has contributed to the world around us.
 
Throughout history, artists and scientists have been driven by curiosity and the desire to experiment. Both have wanted to make sense of the world around them, often to change it, sometimes working closely together, certainly taking inspiration from each other’s disciplines. The relationship between the two has traditionally been perceived as one of love and hate, fascination and revulsion, symbiotic but antagonistic. But art is crucial to helping us understand our science legacy and science is well served by applying an artistic lens. How exactly has the ingenuity of science and technology been incorporated into artistic expression? And how has creative practice, in turn, stimulated innovation and technological change?
 
The Art of Innovation is a history of the past 250 years viewed through the disciplines of art and science. Through fascinating stories that explore the sometimes unexpected relationships between famous artworks and significant scientific and technological objects – from Constable’s cloudscapes and the chemist who first measured changes in air pressure, to the introduction of photography and the representation of natural history in print – it offers a new way of seeing, studying and interpreting the extraordinary world around us.
