The most recent manifestation of artists working at the intersection of art, science, and technology demonstrates a distinctly autodidactic, heuristic approach to understanding the physical and natural world.
Intimate Science features artists who are engaged in non-disciplinary inquiry; they aren’t allied to the customs of any single field, and therefore have license to reach beyond conventions. This kind of practice hinges on up-close observation, experiential learning, and inventing new ways for the public to participate in the process. And through their engagement with “intimate science,” a more knowledgeable public might well be able to influence what research is supported and adopted by the larger culture, and the walls of science can become more transparent.
Intimate Science is curated by Andrea Grover and organized by the Miller Gallery at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh.
Open daily 12:00 noon - 6:00 p.m. and late Thursday evenings until 8:00 p.m.;
