Todd Siler, Ph.D. (b: August 23, 1953) is an American visual artist, author, educator and inventor, equally well known for his art and for his work in creativity research. A graduate of Bowdoin College, he became the first visual artist to be granted a Ph.D. from MIT (interdisciplinary studies in Psychology and Art, 1986). Siler began advocating the full integration of the arts and sciences in the 1970s and is the founder of the ArtScience Program and movement. Siler combines insight into the creative process with advances in plasma physics and neurology, using multimedia arts to create lucid models of novel technological creations, in the tradition of Renaissance artists like Leonardo Da Vinci. In 2006, Siler used a multimedia exhibition at New York's Ronald Feldman Gallery to present his proposal for the nature-inspired "Fractal Reactor," which offers an environmental-friendly, alternative method of using controlled nuclear fusion for energy purposes. This proposal has been taken up by the International Atomic Energy Agency for further study.
