Evolution(s): Opening the Doors of Learning Through Arts and Science
This paper explores some basic assumptions: Both science and the arts have long histories as separate disciplines, although both are strongly based in intuition, discovery, metaphoric transpositions, and the ability to discover and apply concepts. In general, most people look at only the end result in science and art instead of the entire process which preceded the end result. We do not try to make art works that illustrate scientific concepts. It is insight into how science and the arts work similarly that drive us. What are the roles of seeing accidents, relationships, correspondences, morphologies, transpositions, comparisons, and systems? The processes of thinking and wondering that make science and the arts work... what are they? How do we communicate what we see? In metaphor? In allusions? In parables? In abstractions? In reiterations? In structures? These and other questions are considered.
