Why should visual artists turn their attention to science? Because of its new materials and techniques, its strange metaphors, its controversies. An examination of science forces us to view our lives from new perspectives. A.S. Byatt writes We need to feel there is something real out there - of which we are a part and not the whole - and science reveals it to us.
