Study the science of art. Study the art of science. Develop your senses- especially learn how to see.  ― Leonardo da Vinci

Science and art rely on the same basic principles: Observation, creative inquiry, and experimentation.  The perceptive observer is the essence of both. And yet science and art typically have separate domains that feel and look very different. This exhibit presents art that is expressed with a direct link to the science that enabled it (for example 3D photography), and art that includes expressions of science (for example, water-powered movement, or color coding the movements of a bush in the wind.)

The telescope is an observational tool. As a title, ‘Telescope’ references both the principle of observation and the tools that artists use to observe, transform, and document their subject matter.

Special Note: This exhibit is presented in partnership with SAMEE (Sustainable Acts: Mother Earth’s Embrace), an organization working at the intersection of art, science and sustainability, and is part of the Institute On The Environment at the University of Minnesota.
