Silver Linings: Clouds in Art and Science er en tverrfaglig antologi som undersøker skyer i skjæringsfeltet kunst og vitenskap. Gjennom tjuesju bidrag får leseren kjennskap til hva skyer egentlig er, både som vanndråper, røyk, støv eller data, og hvordan de har blitt fortolket og portrettert av kunstnere og vitenskapsfolk gjennom de siste to hundre år.

Utgivelsen er et resultat av et tverrfaglig samarbeid mellom Universitetet i Stavanger og Stavanger kunstmuseum for å samle samtidskunstnere og akademikere til et felles forskningsverksted. Redaktørene Dolly Jørgensen og Finn Arne Jørgensen er henholdsvis professor i historie og miljøhistorie ved Universitetet i Stavanger, og har utviklet The Greenhouse som et tverrfaglig programområde ved Fakultet for utdanningsvitenskap og humaniora.
