About a month ago, I interviewed artist Lisa Hochstein who organized a San Francisco/Santa Cruz based art/science exhibition called Earth Science Art. The interview just posted and can be read on the National Endowment for the Arts’ Facebook page. Here’s an excerpt:
There are many different kinds of art and many kinds of science, but I believe they all share a deep connection, as different expressions of a single human need to know ourselves and the world in which we exist. Despite substantive differences in methods and methodologies (including approaches to framing questions, evaluating information, and communicating results), the two disciplines share a persistent curiosity; an impulse to explore and probe deeply; and a desire to share provisional answers within traditions of thought and practice. Both seek to uncover truth. And both recognize that knowledge is elusive and always subject to challenge and refinement. At their best, artists and scientists share an attentive awareness and a capacity to step outside the comfort of predefined answers. —Lisa Hochstein
