Cancer: Finding Beauty in the Beast


The Bold Roast: Student Conversations art

Caroline Ometz and UT Southwestern PhD student Dhru Deb discuss their scientific/artistic collaboration in exploring cancer, using wabi-sabi and chaos theory to draw connections between the arts and science. The goals of their project are five-fold: gallery installation, publication, creation of a community of cancer sci-artists, education of the public through dialogue about cancer, and the production of new insights in research. Utilizing a process that combines the informational, the emotional and the creative, Ometz and Deb seek to see cancer in a new way.
