When you do an arts degree at university, its easy to see the arts and sciences as natural enemies. However, I’ve also done the early stages of a physics degree, and so I’ve often found the interface between the two disciplines to be fascinating. That’s why I find a new project which links images to interviews done with various scientists so interesting. You’ll need the sound up or headphones on to enjoy this:
I think it goes to show that many scientists are better philosphers than many philosphers.
Apparently it’s going on display in the Science Museum, soon, so consider this a sneak preview.
(Full disclosure: Lorna, my lovely and frighteningly intelligent wife, is one of the interviewees in the project. Listen out for the well-spoken young English female voice, talking about people’s reactions to their bodies.)
