Imagination Can Take You Anywhere Print
Artists are thought of as free-spirited, open-ended, and subjective. Scientists are often viewed as analytical, precise, and objective.
But Science is not cold, rigid, and unfeeling. Art is not some frivolous, fluffy extra. Believe it or not, they are connected.
Curiosity and Imagination are the parents of both art and science.
The same curiosity and imagination that is present when an artist creates a new play, sculpture, or piece of music is present in the best scientists as well. We imagine space travel, and curiosity asks, “How can we make that happen?” Sometimes solutions are hidden within an idea that seems completely preposterous.
This painting was inspired by my first trip to Vancouver, and by a quote often attributed to Albert Einstein: "Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
The well-worn paths we’re used to treading now only lead us astray, to a world that no longer exists.
So what now?
We must stop looking at science and art as opposing forces.
We need to realize that we are all artists. Working in paint, charcoal, or clay is not required.
And likewise, we are all scientists. Even if we don’t wear lab coats.
The way forward is to imagine a better reality, the future we wish to create. And then we tinker our way there, by trying things that might not work and using what we learn to guide our next steps forward.
Our imaginations, spurred on by curiosity, will take us to the future of our dreams.
