We will be the first to admit that our science knowledge is minimal, perhaps that's why we work for an art magazine. Or maybe America doesn't have the best track record for teaching its students math and science. Either way, we wish we remembered more from our science classes and are glad Neil Degrasse Tyson and Netflix are around to occasionally drop some late-night science knowledge. This project from Delhi-based student Khyati Trehan aims to explore scientific diagrams and take form integration to more complex territories. It looks at experimenting with typography, lettering and illustration, paying tribute to the history of science.

Artist/scientist Jonty Hurwitz creates what appear to be ordinary abstract sculptures, but when viewed in a cylinder, reflective surface, the sculpture takes on the appearence of a figurative shape. Hurwtiz won the 2009 Noble Sculpture Prize.

Israeli physics professor Eschel Ben-Jacobs uses invisible colonies of bacteria in both his science and his art. Using growths in a peteri dish, the scientist/artist highlights the beautiful patterns of the moving bacteria colonies as well as their social intelligence. The result are these incredible psychadelic patterns, paths, and interweaving colorful threads...

Roberto Osti's fantastical anatomical drawings explore intersections between modern science and myth. Interested in how humans might one day reach immortality through cloning or the potential reality of hybrid monsters, Osti's awe-inspiring images merge the visual language of scientific drawing with subjects that reveal the absurd potential of rational science.

From neurobiologist to graphic designer. Californian artist Arian Behzadi has continued to create amazing mixed media collages that fuse science with artistic expression. Behzadi explains "I have always found parallels between art and the sciences so a lot of my studies find their way into my artwork."

Newark, Ohio-based artist Angela Christine Smith has created the series "Dissections," a series that mixes science, illustration, and photography into one image. Smith sheds her subject's skin, provides a bit of internal context, and at the same time, shows off some fine illustrative chops.

Tiffany Bozic, cover of our January 2011 issue, just had a monograph released through Gingko Press, Drawn By Instinct. We were lucky enough to get a copy of it here in the office, and with 192 pages of Bozic's beautiful animal and sea life paintings, this is one of our favorite books of the year. On Tuesday September 4th at 6:00pm, Bozic will be giving a lecture and book signing at the San Francisco Public Library, in conjunction with the Cal Academy of Sciences (Bozic was the artist-in-residence there a few years back).
