Arthur I. Miller is fascinated by the nature of creative thinking - in art on the one hand and science on the other. What are the similarities, what are the differences? He has published many critically acclaimed books, including »Einstein«, »Picasso«, »Empire of the Stars« and »137«, and writes for the »Guardian« and »The New York Times«. An experienced broadcaster and lecturer, he has curated exhibitions on art/science and writes engagingly about complex social and intellectual dramas, weaving the personal with the scientific to produce thoroughly-researched works that read like novels. He is professor emeritus of history and philosophy of science at University College London.

For his book »Colliding Worlds« he interviewed leading figures in the world of contemporary science-influenced art and has spent time and lectured at CERN, the MIT Media Lab, Le Laboratoire, the School of Visual Arts and Ars Electronica. In 2013 he was a juror for the Prix Ars Electronica for Hybrid Art.
