この書籍について

Close Encounters of Art and Physics is a voyage in time through the abstract ideas harboured in the minds of humans, starting from the graffiti art of cave dwellers and extending to the street art of contemporary men and women. In seeking parallels with science, the author looks far back to the first geometric ideas of our ancestors as well as ahead to the contemporary science of present-day physicists. The parallelism and analogies between these two fields bear witness to a real entanglement in the human brain. 

The second part of the book contains about 25 colour images showing the author's stunning glass artwork representing ideas such as dark matter, quantum entanglement, cellular automata and many others that are almost impossible to capture in words. Furthermore, many of the physicists who have themselves made major contributions in these fields provide their comments and analysis of the works. 

The book provides entertaining and informative reading, not only for practicing artists and physicists, but also anyone curious about art and physics.



著者について

Laura Pesce was born in the Venetian region of northern Italy. Following her academic studies, she chose the road of experimentation in the arts. Her fascination for science has always been one of her prime motivations. In her works dedicated to art and physics, she combines glass (her signature medium) with paint on canvas, wood or metal, giving, this way, a pictorial-sculptural vision to the abstract concepts of physics. Laura Pesce's works have been exhibited in many galleries and museums in countries around the world, including Brazil,United States,and Europe. She lives and works in Tuscany,Italy.
