In art, the outcomes may be more open-ended, but they’re driven by a similar process of inquiry and desire for discovery.

Great moments of scientific discovery can produce similar eurekas as engagement in arts practice.


 

Articles about the value of of arts-integrative interdisciplinarity have been appearing more frequently in the media. This piece is inspired by “The Imagine Engine! or Art and Science—a True Story,” (which appeared on the Arts Works Blog of the National Endowment for the Arts in 2012). There is a clear pattern emerging in the culture that is elucidated in this story; the transformative power of art is of equal value alongside other disciplines. This article focuses on the link between art and science with regard to discovery and problem solving processes. Artist Daniel Kohn refers to it as “knowledge generation fields in an evolving web of meaning.”
