Eric Vreedenburgh on ‘Locating ArtScience‘ (2017), ArchiNed
“It is these positions between art and technology that can make ArtScience so surprising. Knowledge is limited, while imagination always goes further. Technology says something about how we understand the world, but it is also a simplification of our perception of the world. In the meantime, we are overwhelmed by all kinds of (commercial) information and we no longer see the forest through the trees as a result of which our perspective on and our actions in the world is shifting. Art, unlike technology, does not solve problems, but sometimes, like science, it can raise (fundamental) questions. It is a missed opportunity that there is so little attention for this within the culture of museums here in the Netherlands.”
