This title is the result of a one-week workshop sponsored by the Swedish research agency, FRN, on the interface between complexity and art. Among others, it includes discussions on whether "good" art is "complex" art, how artists see the term "complex", and what poets try to convey in word about complex behavior in nature.


Educated laypersons interested in how the arts and sciences interface. Computer artists. Scientists with an interest in the humanities. Professors teaching interdisciplinary courses in both the humanities and in the sciences
