Professor Robert Krawczyk is helping to bridge the gap between science and art. At IIT he served as the founding director of art@IIT, the university's permanent art gallery. Bringing together art, science and technology, the gallery features exhibits that show the visual appeal of what some might consider to be ordinary scientific work. "Living cells form patterns of incredible complexity and beauty. The thousands of connectors in transistors in a circuit board form a landscape as beautiful as nature's," he says. His personal research agenda centers on digital art--a significant endeavor in the field of architecture--and his work is widely recognized by researchers at prominent architectural institutions.
