Arthur I. Miller understands the intersection of art and science better than anyone writing today. In Colliding Worlds, he brilliantly helps us expand our definitions of art and science while encouraging us to appreciate how both involve an intuitive feel for the beauty of the unseen.

Arthur I. Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs. Arthur I. Miller explores what happens when the brainwaves, objectivity and logic of science spark off the inspiration, subjectivity and wildness of art, and vice versa

Arthur I. A dazzling look at the artists working on the frontiers of science. In Colliding Worlds, Arthur I. Miller takes readers on a wild journey to explore this new frontier. Upcoming lectures in 2019.

In Colliding Worlds, Arthur I. Miller, the author of Einstein, Picasso and other celebrated books on science and creativity, traces the movement from its seeds a century ago-when Einstein's theory of relativity helped shape the thinking of the Cubists-to its flowering today. Through interviews with innovative thinkers and artists across disciplines, Miller shows with verve and clarity how discoveries in biotechnology, cosmology, quantum physics, and beyond are animating the work of designers like Neri Oxman, musicians.

Colliding Worlds How Cutting-Edge Science Is Redefining Contemporary Art. The book brims with an underdog mentality, as the author explains how the establishment art world has turned a cold shoulder to science-driven artists. The tide seems to be turning, as wide-eyed futurism goes mainstream and everyone wants to do a TED talk. Some people who have been out in the wilderness for years are now getting traction, as a museum director puts it. Miller is a professor emeritus at University College London.

A dazzling look at the artists working on the frontiers of science.

In recent decades, an exciting new art movement has emerged in which artists utilize and illuminate the latest advances in science. Some of their provocative creations―a live rabbit implanted with the fluorescent gene of a jellyfish, a gigantic glass-and-chrome sculpture of the Big Bang (pictured on the cover)―can be seen in traditional art museums and magazines, while others are being made by leading designers at Pixar, Google’s Creative Lab, and the MIT Media Lab. In Colliding Worlds, Arthur I. Miller takes readers on a wild journey to explore this new frontier.

Miller, the author of Einstein, Picasso and other celebrated books on science and creativity, traces the movement from its seeds a century ago―when Einstein’s theory of relativity helped shape the thinking of the Cubists―to its flowering today. Through interviews with innovative thinkers and artists across disciplines, Miller shows with verve and clarity how discoveries in biotechnology, cosmology, quantum physics, and beyond are animating the work of designers like Neri Oxman, musicians like David Toop, and the artists-in-residence at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.

From NanoArt to Big Data, Miller reveals the extraordinary possibilities when art and science collide.

A comprehensive review of the current state of the intersection of art and science/technology. It offers an overview of some of the names out there, both contemporary and from the past. Also it goes past some of the most important milestones of the history of this branch of artistic endeavors, altogether with the institutions, events and spaces that have played and play a part in it.

An overall interesting read, with some of the authors anecdotal insights and positions.

This is a brilliant and important book. Arthur not only surveys this most exciting field, but through his copious original research, presents the people and stories behind the work. The result is much more engaging and informative than the usual academic and technical survey. The thesis, on the merging of science and art, is an important area of our cultural development. As science and technology grow and increasingly influence every corner of human existence, the nature of the mix is an important question. Arthur stakes his claim and takes you an an illuminating journey that will leave you at least sympathetic if not convinced. (full disclosure: I am a subject of the book)

Excellent and comprehensive text on permutations of art-science. One of the best sources on this intersection. Highly recommended.

We were very happy with the book, especially the chapter on our friend Dr. Richard Taylor.

This is a fascinating and hugely knowledgeable and wide-ranging account of the relationship between art and science in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. From the creative dialogue between Einstein and Picasso, through the mechanical experiments in New York of Rauschenberg and Kluvier to the weird transformations of their own bodies performed by Stelarc and ORLAN, Arthur I. Miller traces what he calls the new avant-garde, in which the boundaries between the disciplines of fine art and science and technology are breaking down. In the process he raises some important questions, about whether we need to find a new kind of aesthetics and whether our concept of beauty is changing, and he highlights some very interesting repercussions of the science/art interface: the role of fractal analysis, for example, in authenticating a Jackson Pollock painting, or the extent to which art can make visible the invisible at the Hadron Collider in CERN. I was not entirely convinced by his argument that the boundaries between art and science only really started blurring in the early twentieth-century; it seems to me that creative thinkers have always been interested and deeply read across subject areas. Think Newton and Blake on optics, or Coleridge and Humphrey Davy. But I guess Miller had to begin the narrative somewhere for the book to be at all manageable. All in all, this is a highly engaging, well-written and passionate analysis of a very important subject, which should be essential reading for artists and scientists alike.

C.P. Snow in The Two Cultures and the Scientific Revolution (1959) never envisioned someone like Arthur Miller would come along. Miller is a physicist, he has an encyclopedic knowledge of contemporary art, and he writes well. When I began hanging out in the New York art scene in the 1960’s, most of the artists were crazier than the proverbial mad scientist. The art community was staunchly anti-science, really anti-everything but sex drugs and rock and roll. Art now is nothing like it used to be, even for artists who still mix colors. Miller’s book reads like an excellent history of the mayhem that made contemporary art the dominant art form, at least for the moment. Historians in the future, however, will study the work as representative of its time. Colliding Worlds conveys Miller’s singular experience of the revolution.

I really enjoyed this book and also learnt a great deal from it. It’s a gripping account of what’s going on in the world of art, where artists work alongside scientists to create works that express our modern scientific age. There are all sorts of extraordinary artists and artworks described here, from some who experiment on their own bodies to some who make sculptures depicting data and others who work in sound. Most informative and very enjoyable and lots of good illustrations
i found the book idiosyncratic and not a significant addition to the literature=i recommend steve wilson's 'information science' instead although it is a few years old
