The visual arts and sciences have a shared history of creativity and parallel paths of experimentation, goal seeking, and trial and error. Both disciplines employ innovative techniques and novel materials that help their practitioners develop new ideas, discoveries, and visual products. [RE]Imagining Science, a catalogue featuring art and science projects primarily based at Indiana University, highlights distinctive types of collaborations that occur within this genre of contemporary practice.
