ARTEMiS is based at the MIT Office of Digital Learning and we also work with visual artists from the Boston area. This page presents our artistic team, which has over forty years of combined experience in the visual arts, including illustration, graphic design, 2D and 3D animation, and visual effects production for film and interactive media. (See also the collaborators page for our mathematics, science, and engineering partners.)

We especially need imagination in science. It is not all mathematics, nor all logic, but it is somewhat beauty and poetry.
