442 Pieces of Art Inspired by A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking | #bookclub #ArtTuesday

Science Friday, in partnership with Ello (remember them!), conducted a competition for artists to submit works for their “summer Book Club conversation about Stephen Hawking’s 1988 book ‘A Brief History of Time.’” Here’s a bit about the portfolio competition, along with some of my favorite submissions below:

This summer, as part of the Science Friday Book Club reading of Stephen Hawking’s monumental work, ‘A Brief History Of Time,’ we called upon artists to help us interpret Hawking’s vivid depictions of the universe with art. Working with the online artists’ network Ello, we hosted a portfolio competition for artists who wanted to help us hook the next generation of theoretical physicists, mathematicians, and science communicators.

And wow, did you deliver! 335 artists submitted 442 pieces of art as part of our open opportunity. They ranged from the digital masterworks to engrossing gifs to stunning photographs, all of which can be viewed here.

Of those pieces, six stood out—and we were able to commission them to help us tell the story of spacetime. We’re extremely pleased to present ‘A Brief History of Time’… in art.

Below are some examples – and Science Friday’s selected winners (along with their artist statements) are here.
