Is Sasha R. Gregor a scientist who loves art?

 

Or perhaps an artist who takes inspiration

from science?

 

His passion for optical physics has led him to investigate the mysterious phenomenon of light as a source of knowledge. Gregor uses his artistic projects to forge unprecedented links between art and science, offering at the same time a hyper-technological approach to the concept of beauty and an aesthetic vision of epistemology.

 

Sasha R. Gregor was born in Barcelona (1970) and has degrees in Optics (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya), Techno-scientific photography (CITM, Centro de la Imagen y la Tecnología Multimedia) and Philosophy (Universitat de Barcelona).
