Write The First Customer Review

For art in the 20th century, the medium is the message. Many artists offer works defined by their materials. In "Bright Earth, " Philip Ball brings together the themes of art and science to show that chemical technology and the use of color in art have always existed in a symbiotic relationship that has shaped both of their courses throughout history. By tracing their co-evolution, Ball reveals how art is more of a science, and science more of an art, than is commonly appreciated on either side of the fence.
