ATEC Professor Publishes New eBook on the Union of Art and Science

September 15, 2014

screen480x480Dr. Moon Kim, a professor of materials science and engineering, has published Art & Technology, an interactive book for the iPad that focuses on the union of art and science.

The book explores how art and science were born and how they diverged but continued to influence each other throughout the ages.

“Through our explorations, you will come across many things that you may be unable to distinguish as art or science,” said Kim.  Dr. Kim also teaches courses in the Arts and Technology program.

The app was created with the help of Arts and Technology alumni Aaron Klick BA ’12 and Jorden Gray BA ’14. Gray created  illustrations for the app and Klick developed the interactive elements as well as artwork. Klick is also currently pursuing his MFA in Arts and Technology.

Art & Technology is available for download from the Apple App store.
