There are some that might be inclined to say that art and science are polar opposites. It’s easy to see why. One is based entirely on subjective interpretation of the world, while the other strives to discover objective fact. What Mark Levinson’s fascinating documentary Particle Fever suggests is that, though different in practice, art and science originate from the same place within humanity. Each fulfills a longing to have a deeper understanding of the world around us. And while science may be seen to be a dry, dispassionate pursuit, Levinson’s film invites us into the world of scientific discovery, and all of the excitement that it can contain.
