Graduate Student, Humberto Foronda, is recognized in UCSB's Art of Science competition

The Aesthetics of Scientific Discovery

Art of Science winners share the beauty of science through imagery describing some aspect of their research

Seeking to encourage researchers to express the joy of scientific discovery through aesthetics, UC Santa Barbara again held its Art of Science competition. From the 56 entries, four winners and six honorable mentions were chosen. Humberto Foronda was one of the honorable mentions. 

All the artwork will be exhibited at the UCSB Library beginning July 28.

The Art of Science initiative recognizes the creative and experimental nature of science and challenges UCSB researchers to visually communicate the beauty inherent in scientific investigations. Participants in the competition use everything from photographs to spectroscopic images to data visualizations to reflect their discoveries.
