Last week at ScienceOnline2012, real life and virtual attendees were treated to the first ScienceOnline Science Art Show, a digital gallery showcasing the expanse of creativity when science and art interweave. A prime example from over 100 in the show, Raven Amos’s Troodon in the Rushes is a painting that could not have existed even a couple of decades ago. An intelligent, fully-feathered theropod settles in for a drink, in a riotous landscape reminiscent of Rousseau replete with Hokusai flora. Like many of the images seen in the show, Amos has created her painting using modern theories (complete with citations) and has taken them to a place of compelling artistry.
