Throughout the 20th century, art and science have already been considered at odds with one another, each wanting to embody opposing finishes associated with the human knowledge, item and subjectivity. This divide is, however, a harmful and false dichotomy. By isolating facts from their original mental context boffins rob their particular data and tales of a powerful narrative. I really hope through this exhibit to raised know very well what artistic phrase provides scientists in assisting intuitive comprehension of complex problems.

Art is an easy method of evoking a difficult response to a certain representation of truth. By depicting and critiquing the results of human task in the environment, and our futile attempts to cage and get a grip on nature, the pieces within exhibit present a compelling argument for durability and ecological reconciliation. By showing environmental problems within a visual narrative, there performers break down the barriers between environmental disaster and aesthetic admiration in a way that forces the viewer to confront their particular complacency when you look at the air pollution. Regardless if the image depicts nuclear fallout, algal blooms, food safety or sea-level rise, these pieces supply an instantaneous link with the people and places directly affected.
