Science

Xavier Cortada finds artistic inspiration in science, nature, and data, being a strong believer that art can tell the story of both established scientific knowledge and breakthrough scientific discoveries. Throughout his career, Cortada has collaborated with scientists to celebrate the discovery of the “God Particle” at CERN, synthesize an actual DNA strand generated by visitors of his museum exhibit, and develop a real-time water cycle visualization at Hubbard Brook, the forest where acid rain was discovered.
