Is there a science to artistic expression? And who are some people combining science and art creatively?

Hey, this is one of our favorite topics! Here are a few of our favorite artworks that intersect with science and engineering…

I enjoyed this meditation from Greg on art’s intersection with science. Those are great links above, and I’d also recommend my #sciart tag for more. Discussions like these seem to begin with the assumption that art and science have long been at odds. I’m not sure that’s true, at least not in the long run.

Regardless, I think that the two disciplines cook with very similar crucibles of creation, and dammit I’m just gonna have to make a video about this.

Putting the “pi” in “piano”

Check out this awesome piano melody created from the digits of pi! By transposing the numbers 0-9 onto an A minor scale, the irrational melody is played with the right hand and notes are added with the left. It’s pretty mathemagical.

Also, try singing this along with the melody, either out loud or in your head (it totally works):

"I am listening to a sonnnnng about piiiiiii, maaaaking a melody as the numbers fly byyyyy"

Bonus: Check out Daniel Starr-Tambor’s “Mandala”, a melody created from the orbits of the planets placed onto a musical scale. At 62 viginitillion notes (I didn’t even know that was a number), it’s the longest palindrome ever created.
