Miller, the author of Einstein, Picasso and other celebrated books on science and creativity, traces the movement from its seeds a century ago--when Einstein's theory of relativity helped shape the thinking of the Cubists--to its flowering today. Through interviews with innovative thinkers and artists across disciplines, Miller shows with verve and clarity how discoveries in biotechnology, cosmology, quantum physics, and beyond are animating the work of designers like Neri Oxman, musicians like David Toop, and the artists-in-residence at CERN's Large Hadron Collider.

From NanoArt to Big Data, Miller reveals the extraordinary possibilities when art and science collide.
