Science and art are not mutually exclusive, and never have been. Dont believe us? Then how else can one explain the work of Harold E. Edgerton, whose Seeing the Unseen: Photographs by Harold E. Edgerton exhibit showcases imagery not shot through the lens of some fancy digital SLR or TLR, but photographed through stroboscopy and ultra-high-speed technology during the frigging 1930s to 1960s?
The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art presents the free "High-Tech Imaging: When Science Meets Art" lecture. Local photographer and ASU prof Robby Roberson discusses advanced bio-imaging pioneered by the late mad scientist Edgerton, whose inventions eventually led to electronic flash photography.
