This work is one of the first books to examine the relationship between science and contemporary art and to chart the new work beginning to emerge from artist/scientist collaborations. Contributors include distinguished art historian Martin Kemp and artist Andrea Duncan.

Bizarre consequences - introduction and background; the scientist's mind - the artist's temperament; many complex collisions - new directions for art in science; between explanation and inspiration - images in science; us and them, this and that, here and there, now and then - collecting, classifying, creating; creativity and the making of contemporary art; uncertain entanglements; inside - outside - permutation - science and the body in contemporary art; fission or fusion - art, science and society.
