“Art, Science, and Pictorial Space”
Modern Art, despite its familiarity, continues to exist as a perplexing phenomenon to many. Especially, there seems to be a gulf of understanding between those devoted to the sciences and those engaged in knowing and making art. In many respects science and art are parallel disciplines and each share and benefit from the discoveries of the other. This is particularly evident when the historical development of science is related and compared to the historical development of pictorial space. This talk will attempt to summarize those developments.
