Chiasma -- Science-inspired Art Publication


Chiasma is a new science-inspired art publication that aims to explore the crossover between art and science. This is a publication that seeks to challenge the perceived disparity between the two fields, and to encourage people to view art as a science and science as an art. To all science scholars who can see and appreciate the intricate folds of mitochondria cristae, the elegance of particle collisions, or the interplay of chemicals in reactions, we encourage your participation. To all artistic creators who can perceive the laws behind realism and discover and interpret the motifs of the universe, we send you an invitation. To all literary composers who can orchestrate words and numbers and voice the profundity of nature, we urge your consideration. Whether you are a professional or amateur, you are welcome to submit to Chiasma.

We invite all of you to share your photography, poetry, sketches, paintings, narratives, and any other form of expression and help create an interdisciplinary network of inspiration. Here is the NYU School of Medicine Literary Arts Magazine, which serves as a model for Chiasma:http://webdoc.nyumc.org/nyumc/files/studentaffairs/attachments/Agora_Spring_2010.pdf . We encourage all of you to join us in becoming the founders of a science-art initiative at USC. If you are interested in submitting your work to Trojan Health Connection or getting more involved, please email chiasma.artsci@gmail.com.
