Nature, Science & Art
“There is grandeur in this view of life… from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved.” — Charles Darwin
Did you know it’s Darwin’s bicentenary this year? To mark the occasion, The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, UK is showing an imaginative exhibition called Endless Forms: Charles Darwin, Natural Science and the Visual Arts which explores the ways that Darwin’s scientific theories influenced artists.
They’d love to see some contemporary responses to the themes in their exhibition, so they’ve set up the Endless Forms Group on Flickr – all photos from the group will be displayed on screens in the courtyard of the Fitzwilliam Museum until the exhibition closes in October 2009. Just head on over the Endless Forms Group to find out how you can submit a photo.
