This weeks' editor:

Welcome to Sort of Nothing Like A Book Club, the newsletter from Creative CoLab.

5-14th March is British Science Week, a ten-day celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths. 

These subjects are crucial to our understanding of ourselves, and the world around us. For this edition, I've been taking a look into the connections between science and art. 

Read on to find out what I've discovered.
"To develop a complete mind: Study the science of art; Study the art of science."
- Art and Science

In this blog post, I take a look at the relationship between art and science. I look at examples of where they are combined in art, including visual art, theatre and film. I consider how scientific innovation has impacted the artwork we create. 
I Was a Medical Advisor for Grey's Anatomy. Here's What I Learned
In this piece, Hope Jackson talks about her experience as a medical advisor for Grey's Anatomy. She talks about how she spent time in the writer's room to ensure medical scenes were accurate, helped actors pronounce medical terminology, and how the experience impacted her and her work as a surgeon. 

The Physics of Harmony
This video looks at the physics of harmony in music. It looks at how physics can explain how certain notes sound nice or not nice together. He explores how the frequency of notes affects this consonance/dissonance, sound waves and the note system. (Although this video is created by a student for a school class, it's great as it is very informative and easy to understand!) 

Stage of reason: How theatre is being used to engage people in science
This article looks at how scientists are looking to artists to connect the public with their work. It highlights particular theatrical works that explore scientific theories and elements, the impact of these shows and considers how dancers, actors and performers can help us make sense of these big scientific ideas. 

Have Art and Science Been Inseparable Throughout the History of Civilization?
This article looks at how art and science have been entwined throughout history. It considers key historical practices, individuals and events that demonstrate the inseparability of scientific research and artistic expression. 

Turning science to movie magic
This piece looks at how physicists help filmmakers incorporate accurate science into their movies. The Science and Entertainment Exchange connect film teams with scientists to create accurate stories. Advisors have been used for many films including Avengers (2012 - 2019), Gravity (2013), and Interstella (2014).

And Lastly...

The relationship between science and art is fascinating. Who knows what the next scientific advancement will mean for the art world - I'm excited to find out!
