Frank Malina

Frank Joseph Malina (October 2, 1912 – November 9, 1981) was an American aeronautical engineer and painter, especially known for becoming both a pioneer in the art world and the realm of scientific engineering. Early life[edit] Malina was born in Brenham, Texas. His father came from Bohemia. Frank's formal education began with a degree in mechanical engineering from Texas A&M University in 1934. In 1935, while a graduate student at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), Malina persuaded Professor of Aeronautics Theodore von Kármán to allow him to pursue studies into rocketry and rocket propulsion.

Malina and five associates (including Jack Parsons) became known at Caltech as the "Suicide Squad" because of their dangerous experiments (and failures) when testing rocket motor designs. Career[edit] In 1942, von Kármán, Malina and three other students started the Aerojet Corporation. Scientist Artist Collaborations group. UPCOMING NSF NEA WORKSHOP ON ART SCIENCE.

[Yasmin_discussions] Benefits of art science collaboration to science and engineering



INTEGRATION ? The THIRD CULTURE ARGUMENT ? SEVERAL GOALS ? In response to one of the discussions Drew made a comment, below, that the “goal of Art Sci is integration” Is this really the goal ? Personally I am less than convinced by the broad Third Culture Claims, or the overarching transcilience claims of E.O Wilson I think there are very good reasons why we need focused disciplinary domains with people who are deep experts in these domains. However for many types of problems we have to cross domains to bring together the approaches and content needed for resolution.

If you google ‘the water problem’ you will find people who argue this way =that for certain kinds of issues we have no choice but to bridge the arts and sciences ( and eventually politics and society at large). What are the Different Types of Art Science Collaboration. We propose to develop here some kind of breakdown of the different kinds of art science collaboration as an aid to analysis, while recognising that this set of categories is not ‘orthogonal’ and many projects involve several types.

How to select Art-Sci through Peer Review. Issue: How to put together traditional peer review or selection committees to evaluate and rank Art Science Proposals In the discussions so far, an issue has come up repeatedly of the problem of how to “select for funding’ art science proposals Typically panels are composed of experts who have established their pre-eminence in given discipline and not in art-science.

How to select Art-Sci through Peer Review

Resulting ranking of proposals are often ‘drive to the median’ exercises where the most risky/promising proposals do not emerge from peer review. Patents Filed Resulting from Art Science Collaborations. Re the upcoming NSF NEA Re/Search: Art, Science, and Information Technology workshop One way of documenting this kind of outcome is by identifying patents filed by the art-science teams I dont want to get into a discussion here of IP and whether the current patenting system is an impediment to innovation- there are many arguments showing that filing patents, especially too early or in areas that are too broad, impedes innovation rather than encourages it. ( and less than one in a thousand patents ever get exploited) Robert Thill ( has been compiling a list of patents filed by artists for the ARTSACTIVE network.

One survey of the field in Isotope: A Journal of Literary Science and Nature Writing puts it this way: "BioArt is often ludicrous. It can be lumpy, gross, unsanitary, sometimes invisible, and tricky to keep still on the auction block. But at the same time, it does something very traditional that art is supposed to do: draw attention to the beautiful and grotesque details of nature that we might otherwise never see. While raising questions about the role of science in society, "most of these works tend toward social reflection, conveying political and societal criticism through the combination of artistic and scientific processes While most people who practice BioArt are categorized as artists in this new media, they can also be seen as scientists, since the actual medium within a work pertains to molecular structures, and so forth.
