Gregg Chenoweth: Trend -- artistic science and scientific art

Abstract:
For example, the University of California put up $400 million to build a science-art "collaboratory" for 900 nanotechnology specialists and digital media artists who "visualize" scientific information. In the facility, a wall-sized computer monitor displays characteristics of the human brain in 100 million pixels. The typical computer screen shows 1,000 pixels.

Director Ramesh Rao says this project gives both art and science "a degree of panache" currently lost in the specialization boom of American education.
