Art of Science is a competition organized by MRS each year where scientists and engineers showcase the artistic inspiration in their work. The 2017 competition had 30 finalists with 27 print and 3 cross-media exhibits, with many of the works shown below. The event was held in the Packard Atrium on May 19th. The artwork was judged based on scientific and artistic merit. Our judging team included:
- Julie Delliquanti – Director of Education at Cantor Arts Center
- Alberto Salleo – Associate Professor Materials Science and Engineering
- Jen Dionne – Associate Professor Materials Science and Engineering
- Eric Appel – Assistant Professor Materials Science and Engineering
- Srdan Keca – Assistant Professor Art History
- Pamela Davis – Artist and Lecturer at Stanford Design Program
The Art of Science is a student-organized competition where scientists and engineers showcase the artistic inspiration in their work.

People’s Choice Winners:
Unitarity by Alex Kwiatkowski:
Simulated quantum dynamics with a carefully chosen Hamiltonian can produce interesting visual patterns. This is a simulation of a relatively low-dimensional system, and each moving object represents the time-evolution of a wavefunction coefficient plotted in the complex plane.
A Method: A Crystal Structure by Katherine Walker
Cross stitch of an unexpected 3 palladium-2 oxygen intermediate compound as characterized by desorption electrospray ionization mass spectroscopy.
