Art + Science Now


How CP Snow would have enjoyed this image of a frog malformed by pollution. In 1959, in a famous lecture, the eminent scientist and novelist described a rift between the "two cultures", the sciences and the humanities, failing to anticipate that five decades later, a wealth of exhilarating art is being produced in laboratories. This frog – or DFA 18, Triton (2001/7) to give it its proper title – is the creation of Brandon Ballengée, an environmental artist who says his work "attempts to blur the already ambiguous boundaries between environmental art and ecological research"
