Cross-pollinate. It is where innovation comes from.
At the moment, a colleague and I have this sweet arts/science thing going on.
Today, we experimented with making sugar glass. While not the most rigorous of science experiments, it was still an excellent experiment nonetheless. I consider an experiment a success when a large group of students are laughing excitedly while a piece of sugar glass is being tested (read: smashed) on a students back. We definitely made our pieces too thick (ouch!)
What is beautiful, is that the experiments are directly related to two films that I am making with students (smashing bottles over heads in fight scenes). Hahaha – art and science!
