Hi, Everybody - 

I want to alert you to this year's photo exhibition for my UC Davis class, "Photography: Bridging Art and Science." Here are the details: 

Opening reception: Thursday, June 5, 3-5pm 
Exhibition runs: June 4-June 30 
Location: Buehler Alumni and Visitors Center, UC Davis Campus 
Directions and information:

Hope you can attend! 



The final student exhibition for "Photography: Bridging Art and Science," a 
Science and Society Program class taught by Terry Nathan as a part of the 
Art-Science Fusion Program at the University of California, Davis, 
will be held at the Buehler Alumni and Visitors Center on the University of 
California, Davis campus beginning June 4 and continuing through June 30. The 
exhibit features 50 student photographs exploring the conceptual 
connections between art and science and the role of art and science on the UC 
Davis campus. The opening reception, which is free and open to the public, 
is June 5 from 3-5 p.m.

Beginning with centuries-old experiments in optics and chemistry to the 
present-day digital revolution, the camera has relied on science for its 
development while also serving as a vital scientific tool for probing and 
documenting the natural world. In the hands of the artist, the camera has 
heightened our awareness of the aesthetic qualities of space and light 
while revealing hidden truths about culture and society. 

In this art/science fusion course (SAS 40), students use photography to 
explore the common ground occupied by art and science. Two lectures each 
week address topics such as the art and science roots of photography; 
principles of space, time and light; Gestalt psychology meets Einsteinian 
physics in photographic composition; the geometric foundations of art and 
science; order versus disorder; and photographic interpretation of the 
environment. One studio session each week builds visual literacy skills 
through hands-on photography projects. This final student exhibition highlights the 
learning and creativity that emerges when students explore the intellectual 
realm shared by art and science.
