Merging Art and Science to Make a Revolutionary New Art Movement


Merging Art and Science to Make a Revolutionary New Art Movement

Science is changing our world and our lives at an ever increasing rate. But today artists are bringing science out of the laboratory.

Once art and science seemed diametrically opposite; but these days some of the most innovative artists are fusing art and science to create a brand new art movement inspired by science. Striving to visualise the invisible and what it must mean to be human in the future, they create images and objects of stunning beauty, redefining the notion of aesthetic and of what is meant by art.

These days the term 'art and science' is on everyone's lips - but no one quite knows what it is or where it is going. Does it mark the rise of a new culture in which science and technology will be the driving forces and will even perhaps determine the future of culture? Are there similarities in the creative processes of artists and scientists? Can science benefit from art? And can considering these questions bring us any closer to understanding creativity? This exhibit is a step towards exploring these key issues of the 21st century.

Professor Arthur I. Miller will lead discussions in the gallery exploring the issues raised. The artists in the exhibition will also discuss with the audience to further the debate.
