'Intelligent design' theme of Art of Science exhibit
Date:11/14/2011

Research images from Princeton University's fifth "Art of Science" competition whose theme is "intelligent design" -- are now available for viewing in an online gallery:

"In recent years, the phrase 'intelligent design' has taken on a polarizing meaning," said Art of Science co-organizer Andrew Zwicker, who is the head of Science Education at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) and a lecturer in the Princeton Writing Program. "But in the broadest sense, beautiful objects, both natural and the manufactured, have an intelligence to their form, their function, and thus, their design."

Art of Science co-organizer Adam Finkelstein, professor of computer science at Princeton and a co-organizer of the competition, said that the theme for the 2011 exhibit came from a desire to reframe the phrase "intelligent design."

"We wanted to celebrate the idea that both nature and the rearranging of the natural world have inherent beauty," Finkelstein said.

Zwicker said that the term "intelligent design" encompassed a wide range of potential images: a field rabbit regulating its body temperature through its posture; a simulation of the birth of a galaxy; an electron micrograph of a computer chip created with novel materials.

"We sought images that captured the exquisite harmony of such systems," Zwicker said.

First Prize for the competition went to Christophe Gissinger, a postdoctoral researcher in Astrophysics and with the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory for his "Chaos and geomagnetic reversals." Second Prize went to Zhen James Xiang, a graduate student in Electrical Engineering for "Tree." Third prize went to Xuening Bai, a graduate student in Astrophysics, and James M. Stone, a professor in Astrophysics, for their "Dust to Dust, to Planets?"
