The living cosmos

A fabric that binds art and science

Chris Impey, Heather Green

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The authors, an astronomer and an artist, have collaborated on a series of seven mixedmedia constructions and prose pieces that follow the flow and themes of Impey's book on astrobiology, The Living Cosmos. The book summarizes recent research on astrobiology, from the origin of life on Earth and its environmental range on this planet to the search for life in the solar system and beyond. The artist's work encapsulates these ideas with its use of material objects, textures, images and metaphors that mirror the elements of the scientific approach to astrobiology.
