Arkansas State University Museum presents two new exhibits

Abstract:
Two new exhibitions, now open at the Arkansas State University Museum, offer great summer fun and learning for families or for group field trips: "Science and Art" and "Illusion Confusion."

"Science and Art" features artists integrating scientific principals into their art and includes hands-on science activities. "Illusion Confusion" also offers hands-on activities for children and adults, allowing them to learn more about how perceptions can create illusions. "Science and Art" includes the mathematical principals of origami; the physics, mathematics, and computer science of 1-bit digital music; electrical engineering and computer science in wearable art; and nanotechnology and computer science in a multimedia interactive experience.

Rounding out the exhibit is electronic artist and computer scientist Scott Snibbe, who introduces visitors to the concept of the nanoscale. "Three Drops" is a multimedia experience that invites participants to move in front of a large screen and interact with projections of water at the macroscale, the microscale and then the nanoscale level, thereby allowing them to experience how the physical properties of water change at these three different scales.
