I have a shirt proclaiming “Magic is just stuff Science hasn’t made boring yet”. Now that isn’t all true Science is awesome and a pillar of the ceramic jive.
It is perhaps, however, the artist’s role to look at the stuff of science in a new light. To see both macro and micro in what cultural artistic role and values all the dry digits and glitchy readings might lend to the human spirit, to aesthetic expression. The artist must take what is seen everyday and sway a shift in consciousness, force one to see what has not been seen before. Today try to actually see what you look at everyday. We are so often shackled with blinders of our daily living when indeed there is great beauty there.
This book, The Microcosmos, lends a hand to such an end giving us a sampling of such beauty that science provides.
