Rebecca Kamen, sculptor and lecturer on the intersections of art and science, seeks "the truth" through observation. Her artwork is informed by wide-ranging research into cosmology, history, philosophy, and by connecting common threads that flow across various scientific fields to capture and re-image what the scientists see. She has investigated scientific rare books and manuscripts at the libraries of the American Philosophical Society, the Chemical Heritage Foundation, and the Cajal Institute in Madrid, utilizing these significant scientific collections as a catalyst in the creation of her work. Kamen has researched on collaborative projects at the Center of Astrophysics at Harvard University, the Kavil Institute of Technology, and at the National Institutes of Health. Selected as Salzburg Global Seminar fellow in 2015, she was invited to Austria to present her work as part of a seminar titled: The Neuroscience of Art: What are the Sources of Creativity and Innovation.
