SCIENCE | FICTION

ORGANIZER AND DATES

Berman Museum of Art, Ursinus College, Collegeville, Pennsylvania

June 6 – October 6, 2019

 

DESCRIPTION

The line that distinguishes science from fiction is blurred. Science fuels fiction. What was once fictional moves into the realm of science. In the work of the 12 international artists, all born in the 1960s and 70s, when satellites routinely orbited the earth and the moon had been stepped upon by Neil Armstrong, the boundaries between science and fiction, art and fact, disappear. Scientifically collected data is translated into poetic forms and images. Fanciful ideas are expressed in the controlled language of scientific communications.
