Artistic works in themes of science are displayed at Shanghai Jiao Tong University.

A workshop was launched on Tuesday at the Tsung-Dao Lee Library on Minhang Campus of Shanghai Jiao Tong University to promote artistic creation in themes of science.

The five-day workshop, the first of its kind organized by the Tsung-Dao Lee Science and Art Committee, invited 15 people from 10 Chinese universities, including two teachers, an artist and 13 students, to attend lectures delivered by scientists and artists and inspire them to create artistic works on the scientific theme of “time reversal,” which is also the topic of this year’s Tsung-Dao Lee Science and Art Competition.

Lee, a winner of Nobel Prize in physics in 1957 for discovering “parity nonconservation in weak interaction,” has been promoting integration of science and art and sees them as the two sides of a coin.

The competition has been organized since 2014 and some previous winning works are also on display at the Tsung-Dao Lee Library.
