Art and science have always been considered disparate entities. Very different fields operating on distinctly different parameters. However, acclaimed Bharatanatyam dancer and award-winning art historian, archaeo-metallurgist and scientist Dr. Sharada Srinivasan has proved that the twain does meet. An IIT graduate with a doctorate from University College, London and now Associate Professor, National Institute of Advanced Studies, Bangalore, Sharada has been breaking art-science boundaries to show that there is art in science and vice-versa.

Her most recent success showcases a lyrical synthesis of art, science and advanced technology.
