Process versus products: The role of creativity in the working lives of scientists
By Rebecca G. Asch, Senior Nereus Fellow, Princeton University
My mother is an abstract expressionist painter who creates art using oil paints, acrylics, watercolors, and pen and ink. My father has a Masters degree in physics and spent most of his career working as a software engineer. As a result, I have born witness to many conversations about the intersection between art and science throughout my life.
