Artscience: Creativity in the Post-Google Generation by David Edwards

Synopsis: Scientists are famous for believing in the proven and peer-accepted, the very ground that pioneering artists often subvert; they recognize correct and incorrect where artists see only true and false. And yet in some individuals, crossover learning provides a remarkable kind of catalyst to innovation that sparks the passion, curiosity, and freedom to pursue—and to realize—challenging ideas in culture, industry, society, and research. This book is an attempt to show how innovation in the “post-Google generation” is often catalyzed by those who cross a conventional line so firmly drawn between the arts and the sciences.
