Princeton University has posted the 56 works they've selected for their 2006 Art of Science exhibition. These are pieces "produced in the course of research or incorporating tools and concepts from science." Electrical Engineering grad student Qiangfei Xia's "Easter Bonnet" won third prize in the competition and I think it's stunning.

What do Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Google all have in common? Somewhere in their framework, they all use MySQL, that most versatile (and free!) of database management systems.
