In Art Alive! with Science, award-winning author Mary Auld explores moments from art history that have expanded our understanding of the way things work, such as the beautiful balance of forces in kinetic sculpture, the interplay of light and shadow in painting and puppetry and how Op Art tricks our brains and plays with our senses.
Following each case study of astounding innovation, there is a creative project that applies the scientific learning to the reader's own art practice. The unique art style of illustrator Sue Downing is sure to draw in young artists, especially alongside the photos of each artist's work and contribution to the timeline of innovation.
