Art & Science Now , 2010
Thames & Hudson anthology.
ISBN 9780500238684

A visual survey of artists working at the frontiers of science and technology, focusing on work since 2000. It covers artistic experimentation in fields such as biology, ecology, medical research, physics, geology, robotics, telecommunications, artificial intelligence, information visualization, and body-sensing computer interfaces. It explains how this artistic exploration of science and technology can be viewed as a next step in the expansion of the boundaries of art and considers the variety of critical stances artists take toward the research world--stretching from postmodern skepticism about science's truth claims and institutional power to celebration of the human quest to innovate and create new knowledge. It investigates the challenges facing art in a scientific era and trajectories art may pursue in the future. Phillip Warnell's work Endo-Ecto is featured in the publication.
