2017 Contemporary Artist Series: Science in the Southwest
Back from a hiatus, the 2017 Contemporary Series will examine the role that artists have in engaging with different scientific disciplines and presenting information in new and dynamic ways to the public. Although they are now two distinct fields, for centuries science and art were closely intertwined. Contemporary artists are starting to once again bridge the divide and unite the two fields. In 2017 the Museum of the Southwest presents four different artists whose photographs, sculptures and multimedia installations bring together art and science in the American Southwest.

Robert Fathauer
Robert Fathauer is fascinated by beautiful and complex forms both in mathematics and in the natural world. He was trained as a research scientist, having earned a Ph.D. from Cornell University and worked at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He’s also had a lifelong interest in art and has worked in a variety of media. This background enables him to explore mathematical ideas and to extend them in innovative ways to create unique and highly original prints and sculptures. He is particularly intrigued by intricate structures that exhibit symmetrical and regular underlying order.
