The Art of Science voting gallery was created by a team headed by Matthew Salganik, an assistant professor of sociology at Princeton. The site builds upon an existing project called Photocracy, which draws on ongoing research at the Center for Information Technology Policy combining sociology, systems engineering, and theoretical computer science.

"The platform we have built is essentially a suggestion box for the digital age, a tool that will enable groups to collect and then collaboratively evaluate new information such as ideas or photos or in this case, the art of science," said Salganik.

David Dobkin, one of the official judges for the competition, noted that, "as in past years, the quality of submissions to the Art of Science exhibit this year made judging almost impossible."

"The committee felt that many of the entries were worthy of recognition and it was difficult to narrow our selections down to three favorites," said Dobkin. "It will be interesting indeed to see whether the viewing public echoes our choices or offers a different opinion altogether."
