Astromomy & Art; Universal appeal?
A talk by Prof Andy Newsam - LJMU
For centuries science and art went hand-in-hand, but more recently they seem to have diverged into two distinct "cultures".
In this talk Andy will describe some forays by an astronomer into the world of art to explore challenging concepts with unsuspecting audiences. From computer music to dance, theatre to gardening shows, and Dark matter to the physics of breakfast we will see some ways in which art and science can work together.
