Art Inspires! Broadening Art Appeal

Art Inspires! Broadening Art Appeal | Art Science Creativity | Scoop.it
The number of people who live their lives thinking they don't like art bewilders me. In fact the question consumes me so much that I've taken to asking it to everyone I meet.

Last week, Silicon Valley Voice took to the stage of the legendary Fillmore concert venue in San Francisco. It was an extravaganza show reminiscent of American Idol, only for geeks, and they rocked! It was amazing to see respected venture capitalists sporting groovy scintillating disco outfits, and signing their lungs off in rhythm. The audience, comprised of technologists from startups and established companies, such as Badgeville, Klout, YouTube and Salesforce, was overjoyed! Exalted tweets soared throughout the night.

Art & Physics and Me

Art & Physics and Me | Art Science Creativity | Scoop.it

"The artist, with little or no awareness of what is going on in the field of physics, manages to conjur up images and metaphors that are strikingly appropriate when superimposed upon the conceptual framework of the physicist's later revisions of our ideas about physical reality. Repeatedly throughout history, the artist introduces symbols and icons that in retrospect prove to have been an avant garde for the thought patters of a scientific age not yet born. " - Leonard Shlain, Art & Physics" Chapter One: Illusion/Reality

This was the huge meme that grew inside my late father's head throughout my childhood. It spilled forth onto our dining room table, on walks along the beach during family outings, on napkins where he diagrammed what it would look like to sit astride a beam of light and how Einstein's Theory of Relativity corresponded with, say, Cubism and Marcel Duchamp's 'Nude Descending a Staircaise' and it spilled forth within the reams of paper that I edited, chapter by chapter of what would become his first best-selling book, throughout high school in and college.

What Schools Can Learn From Google, IDEO, and Pixar

What Schools Can Learn From Google, IDEO, and Pixar | Art Science Creativity | Scoop.it

THE COUNTRY'S STRONGEST INNOVATORS EMBRACE CREATIVITY, PLAY, AND COLLABORATION -- VALUES THAT ALSO INFORM THEIR PHYSICAL SPACES.

A community about to build or rehab a school often creates checklists of best practices, looks for furniture that matches its mascot, and orders shiny new lockers to line its corridors. These are all fine steps, but the process of planning and designing a new school requires both looking outward (to the future, to the community, to innovative corporate powerhouses) as well as inward (to the playfulness and creativity that are at the core of learning).

In many ways, what makes the Googles of the world exceptional begins in the childhood classroom -- an embrace of creativity, play, and collaboration. It was just one year ago that 1,500 CEOs identified creativity as the number-one leadership competency in our complex global marketplace. We can no longer afford to teach our kids or design their schoolhouses the way we used to if we’re to maintain a competitive edge. In looking at various exemplary workplaces such as IDEO, Google, and Pixar, we can glean valuable lessons about effective educational approaches and the spaces that support them.

Twelve Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking | Psychology Today

Twelve Things You Were Not Taught in School About Creative Thinking | Psychology Today | Art Science Creativity | Scoop.it
Aspects of creative thinking that are not usually taught. By Michael Michalko...

1. You are creative. The artist is not a special person, each one of us is a special kind of artist. Every one of us is born a creative, spontaneous thinker. The only difference between people who are creative and people who are not is a simple belief. Creative people believe they are creative. People who believe they are not creative, are not. Once you have a particular identity and set of beliefs about yourself, you become interested in seeking out the skills needed to express your identity and beliefs. This is why people who believe they are creative become creative. If you believe you are not creative, then there is no need to learn how to become creative and you don't. The reality is that believing you are not creative excuses you from trying or attempting anything new. When someone tells you that they are not creative, you are talking to someone who has no interest and will make no effort to be a creative thinker.

Art interprets the visible world. Physics charts its unseen workings. The two realms seem completely opposed. But consider that both strive to reveal truths for which there are no words––with physicists using the language of mathematics and artists using visual images. In Art & Physics, Leonard Shlain tracks their breakthroughs side by side throughout history to reveal an astonishing correlation of visions. From the classical Greek sculptors to Andy Warhol and Jasper Johns, and from Aristotle to Einstein, artists have foreshadowed the discoveries of scientists, such as when Monet and Cezanne intuited the coming upheaval in physics that Einstein would initiate. In this lively and colorful narrative, Leonard Shlain explores how artistic breakthroughs could have prefigured the visionary insights of physicists on so many occasions throughout history. Provicative and original, Art & Physics is a seamless integration of the romance of art and the drama of science––and an exhilarating history of ideas.
