Abstract:During the past 40 years emphasis in the discussion about the relationship of art and science has changed. The universal view available to Lancelot Law Whyte, to Jacob Bronowski and to Arthur Koestler appears too general to a late twentieth century world that is obsessed with minutiae. Science and art have each become so drawn into their own complexities that the possibility of a common theory to bridge the gulf seems increasingly remote. We continue to circumnavigate the spaces between. The initiative for a meaningful relationship between the two cultures may in the end come from neither science nor art, but from the ubiquitous presence, common to both worlds, of technology.
